  • I am giving a 1-star rating to wake up the people who run the RSPP. Take my advice. DO NOT start hiking in the early evening because you could end up sleeping with the wildlife. The map is great, but....  more

  • This is a huge park with easy walking trails around the lake and over the rolling hills. The trails are marked and, if you pick up a map from the entrance, you can meander a while without getting...

  • It’s so pretty here. I highly recommend a visit if you want to go for either a hike or a run. I love the trails, they are always cleared off and are perfect for walking/jogging. The nature there is amazing!
  • We took our cats here for a walk and they really enjoyed it! Especially Nori enjoyed climbing all over the rocks. This is a perfect place to take your kiddos and pets to enjoy a little bit of nature. There are also horse trails, so you might be lucky and see those as well. We got to see a couple of goslings with their mama, some turtles, birds,… it was so pleasant to walk around. The park wasn’t crowded at all and even if there were a bit more people there are so many trails that all you need to do is to find another trail. The parking was a bit of a problem. We had to park on the side of the highway because the parking lot was full. Also our battery died and we had to wait for AAA to jump start us. Service guy came within 30 min and we were off. While we were waiting for AAA the police came to check on us which was really nice. It felt like if something serious was happening there would be someone to help.
  • Wonderful place of nature!! The whole place smells like the great outdoors... in a good way😆 Bird watching, fishing, hiking, even horseback riding!! Great place of you love the outdoors.
  • The hike was easy, long flat paths. I also saw a few animals along the way. It’s very pretty here and the flowers smell amazing. Different parts of the park smell different and it was fun sniffing them, but I did get bored. Besides that there’s not much else to do.
  • Beautiful outdoor reserve. Great for walkers and hikers. The air was so crisp and fresh. The beauty of the colors will force of to reflect on the CREATOR for such gifts.
