  • A great place to hike and u don't run into a lot of other hikers
  • Great mountain biking and hiking trails. Ponds for kayaking. Well maintained and busy! This is close to me and a definite go-to park for mountain biking. Very popular, so get there early on weekends especially.
  • The blue trail provides a very long (~6 miles) but nice path to follow. Other trails can get bumpy!
  • Great hiking spot. Saw a couple water snakes.
  • Only saw a small part of the park, but it was very beautiful. We went there with our dog trainer to work with our dog. My only complaint is that many people go unleashed with their dogs, whiched caused problems with our dog since she is reactive to other dogs, who come close when unleashed.
