Beautiful area in February. Everything is nice and green. Trail was flooded due to recent rain but can still be walked. Lots of wildlife including birds, squirrels, and we found a turtle too!
Good hike to take kids :)
Gates are locked. You can park and walked in though. Trial was mostly flooded but manageable. Quick and easy. More of a walk then a hike. Great for kids.
