A wonderful place for all kinds of outdoor activities...rafting, kayaking, adventure courses/canopy tours, zip lining, rock wall climbing, mountain biking and hiking to name a few. There are sixteen trails in all. I combined parts of eight for an 8.1 mile track back in June (with one other trail completed later). It made for a fun and strenuous hike. There is a $5 day or $40 annual parking fee that lets you explore the facility and trails. There are passes for different activities and also season passes if you plan multiple return visits.
Great place to ride or run! I've been going out there before the WWC opened and always enjoy it!
