  • It is a good choice to spend a few hours walking through the Woods, or running. They also have ways to make the bike ride, but is a field cross country is not paved which is a nature reserve. Great place, highly recommended. There are mosquitoes and makes heat, bring water and insect repellent.

  • The parking is limited, but the short hike (a little over a mile) is an easy walking loop through a nicely wooded area.  more »
  • Great hiking & biking trails, all well marked. We took the grandkids there (ages 4-12) for a hike and everyone enjoyed it. Don't forget to bring water and a camera!  more »

  • I'm from the Rocky Mountains/Pacific northwest where the hiking is absolutely magnificent, so take that into consideration with my review. I was sadly disappointed with this nature preserve. It's a nice little spot of wilderness in the midst of suburbia, but there's nothing great about it- it's just a swampy bit of trees with nothing to look at but, well, trees and bushes. There is a pond but again, it's a bit underwhelming. The trails are okay but aren't as long as I would have hoped, I could only squeeze two miles out of them before I had to go back outside and run along the roads to get a full six mile run in. When I visited there were puddles all over the entrance and no way to avoid them so I was slogging around in wet shoes the whole time. Maybe it's nicer to visit when everything is dry, but sadly it will take a little encouraging to get me to spend any more time there.
  • 10-8-2016 Hiked over 8 miles here today with the family and had a great time, took some awesome pictures, and saw some cool people. There are lots of trails and miles here to get your fill of the serene environment. Highly recommend this if you are looking to get away and looking for some rugged terrain. We saw a rabbit, lots of birds, a red and yellow crab spider, ponds and creeks.
  • Been here many times over the past 10 years, still full of mosquitoes. But it is relatively pleasant when it is cold and the mosquitoes are dead. Don't like walking on the sand that they covered the trails with, and some litter can be seen on the trails.. better for biking, perhaps.
  • This nature preserve has nice well kept trails. It is perfect for a good workout (bike paths and stretch bars too) or for just enjoying all that nature has to offer. Be sure to bring mosquito spray from April through December because there is a stream winding through the trails.
  • Perfect trail to walk in January no mosquitoes! Easy to find but I wish they had more maps posted while walking. I liked the trail but you need to be careful for branches sticking out ground. Very peaceful near the water.
