  • Really nice place to go for a hike. There are mountain bikers on all the trails we walked, so watch out if you don’t plan on biking. There is a small lake nearby, that I imagine during the summer is really nice. There is a nice stream running along a few of the trails, that really makes you feel out there. Views from the higher elevation areas are beautiful in ideal weather.
  • It's a mtn. biker's dream location. Lots of trails for hikers, bikers, dog walkers, and equestrians. Numerous places to easily access the creek to splash and cool off in. Trails are well maintained and not strenuous.
