  • I went on a beautiful sunny and warm day in January. I don't know why I was surprised to pay for parking, but the lot is on the small side. There are a bunch of different paths to choose from and you can get a map for free. Watch out for the horses, they have the right if way, and even though dogs are not allowed off leash they love it, you can tell. Beautiful place.
  • The trails are wide and well marked. There are trails by water, trails wandering through open fields and through mature trees. It's a great place for families!
  • Absolutely beautiful, great place for picnics, walking the dog, playing with the kids, pretty much anything you want to spend your day doing. Beautiful area all around.
  • Nice trails but no bicycles allowed. Seems to me with all this space bicycles could have some area to enjoy this beautiful park.
  • Worked right by here and loved the quiet and scenic views. A nice break from the hectic crowded area.
