dogs on leash
More trails and rock-climbing opportunities than you can shake a stick at! Trails for every level of ability, walking, running, hiking, biking and skating. Bring your kids, bring your dogs, bring your grandparents, there is something for everyone here. This park is a photographer's delight and is accessible 24/7. There's plenty of wildlife here for birdwatchers to deer-stalkers (but, please, no weapons, this is not a hunting ground). Be sure to bring your Camelback and snacks, this is wilderness in the middle of suburbia.
This is my second time to do this one. The views are great and the hike up makes your heart work. It is a little short for me so if you get to the top and you feel like you want to get some more out of it there are several other hikes connecting if you walk a little past the sign and to the left. You'll head down a fairly steep hill down but it connects you to other hiking trails. You can go and explore for awhile. I'll do this one again for sure. It's closer to where I live so it makes for a nice quick hike.
