We took our children and they loved it! Definitely recommend not taking a stroller as some parts are very steep and the dirt gets a bit slippery but it was a good time!

I took my toddler, able to stroller it with the wheelchair accessible route. Will return maybe solo to explore a bit more.

Beautiful and educational. It doesn’t seem all that big, but I did somehow manage to get myself lost on a trail that wasn’t maintained well. Not a complaint- it was pretty fun following voices until I could make my way back. I always worry about parking because the lost is tiny, but so far, I haven’t actually had an issue.

It's more of a nature walk than an actual hike. Great for portrait photography!

There are many beautiful flowers and other greenery. There is also a small pond with turtles and koi. It's a good hike to do at least once so you know what it's like, however it's a very short/easy trail not really designed to be a workout. Great for kids and peaceful strolls through the gardens.

Great for my 6 & 8 year old boys. Enough trail for a workout but easy enough that they didn't complain.
