Been going here my whole life. Good trails with incredible wildlife. Great place to hike, fish, bird watch, bring your dog. For being stuck right in an urban/suburban area this place is great.

Beautiful (free) place to run, bike, or walk your dog. Flat and easy but it can be pretty muddy on the back end of the loop that goes around the lake. So much beautiful wildlife to enjoy.
