Many intersecting trails that are not clearly marked, making it confusing to determine which path you are on. Tonnes of wildlife and shade.

This is my family's go to.

Loved coming here and plan to do so many more times!!! This is a good, super easy nature walk. We explored every nook we could and still realized we missed another portion to it. Bunnies are everywhere! And they will let you get pretty close to them once in a while. There are actual bathrooms as well which is great for children. This would be a great nature walk for those who may have a hard time actually hiking but want the experience as well as even building endurance to eventually try other trails.

This is an amazing trail. We saw several new species of birds, malard Ducks, quail, rabbits and a few lizards. Over all it was enjoyable and very well kept. The paths were mostly clean, but we got lost for a bit.
