  • The owners are so sweet and passionate about this treasure! It is FREE to the public! We didn't make it far, being out of shape. I suggest you have good balance and be in shape for some of these...

  • This is a truly amazing place. The couple who owns the property was so kind and helpful. They set me up with a nice 3.5 mile hike. Parts of the trail were steep and rocky, I hike often and found it somewhat challenging. But worth it! Beautiful views, so peaceful. Excellent signage and markers of where to go. I enjoyed this so much. One of the best hiking experiences I've had
  • Awesome trails and incredible scenery! My favorite was the boulder pool! The routes were well marked out, there was fresh water available all along the way, and lots of well kept restroom stops. Jim was so nice and helpful with explaining the trails!
  • Phenomenal trail! Everything you could ask for in a hike. Waterfalls, wide open trails, rocks, rivers…you name it. Wear good hiking shoes and watch your footing as leaves are covering most of the trail which means covering up rocks and roots. The owners are incredibly nice people and maintain this trail with love. Very well marked and easy to follow.
  • One of the best places I've ever hiked. Make an effort to hike down to the blue hole it's a beautiful area of the preserve. It's also wonderful that they have bathrooms (pit toilets) all across the preserve as well as watering stations for people to fill there water bottles...just a magical place to hike. Enjoy!
  • Great place for hiking! Strenuous but not too bad. The owners were amazing!! Took time to explain maps and gave a paper with more information on it. I appreciate them for having restrooms and fresh water on days like today! The trails were very well maintained. Thank you for letting others enjoy such a beautiful place!!!
