Nature tripsGreat!

Pretty, well kept. Ran into a staffer who was quite helpful. Brought my mom who can't walk far. She was able to see much of it by walking and then sitting for awhile.

First time here. I didn't walk far and was only here a short amount of time and almost stepped in dog poop 2x aside from the other piled I came across. Pick up after your dog people! Don't ruin such a great place by being an irresponsible dog owner. Thank you. Other than that, I really enjoyed even as short of time I was here. LOTS of cute squirrels.

Great, easy trail. Little muddy in a couple spots. Tons of squirrels and lizards out and about. Enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this park. Use your Google Maps or Apple Maps to get to the entrance. The one on the All Trails site will lead you to a residential area that does not provide access. Use the All Trails map for the actual trail, as the paths are not well marked. Walk towards the amphitheater, and then you will see the start of the trail to your left. There were lots of walkers, dogs, and some children on this well traveled trail. Part of it is for walking only, but there is a bike path for part of it....probably not worth bringing the bike if you have to haul it out there. Enjoy!

It’s very nice. I like it out here. It’s generally peaceful aside from loud people every once in a while.

This is a large and lush park that doesn’t seem like a park. It’s beautiful. Well maintained. And there are many options to choose from. There are lakes, rivers, & bridges. Plenty of shade. & places to sit and take a in the views or to even bring a lunch. Dog friendly, as long as they are on leash.

There’s lots to see. There’s even a hill to climb down now to get to the watershed. The side opposite of the lake should not be left out because that is where most of the gardens and hills is.
