Beware of very limited parking on Sundays as they lock the gates at the front. There is a small lot and parking is not allowed on the road.
This seems to be a conservation area geared towards families picnicking, using the boat launch, etc. so not a good fit if you're looking for a more remote hiking experience. We walked on a lot of pavement.
To be fair we didn't end up really exploring the hiking trails, we started down one and it was muddy to the point of slipping and sliding. We were already turned off enough to just turn back and head home.

mother nature pretty much cleared away presumably for building purposes...
