Despite the heat of a particularly hot weekend, this was a very enjoyable hike. The trails are easy, some options for elevation gain and vistas. There is a small museum and ranger station partway along the main trail, and the pond affords some handy shade and lots of birds. Bring plenty of water - this hike can get hot.

Trail crosses the Indian reservation and is closed. The residents who live at the trailhead call tribal police when they see hikers. The police will pointedly ask if you saw the "No Trespassing" sign, then detail their dislike for trespassers. For everyone's sake, consider this trail closed. It's not really all that great anyway.
Nice little family spot and picnic areas. Took the family in January and as always beautiful weather. There are multiple routes to choose from but this is not a strenuous hike by any means. There are Park Rangers onsite and are more than willing to answer any questions you may have about there area and the historic Mill that's onsite. There are outhouses throughout the preserve and picnic benches. You do have to pay for parking but it is well worth it and its only $3.00. They have maps and other information in regards to the preserve. Have fun and enjoy the day hike in this hidden gem!
