  • Not very well maintained hard to see the details. This is a wooded site maintained by volunteers as far as I can tell. Most of the important areas are acessible unpaved trails mowed into the six foot high weeds and praise grass. Twenty years ago, it was better maintained. There are interpretive signs in several locations. The state paved a section of the Great River Bicycle trail along one side of the site. I still use it on a frequent basis, but walking on the unpaved trails is more difficult.
  • We enjoyed our visit, but didn't quite get the hang of the pathways.
