One of my favorite places to hike. Lots of turkeys and deer...plenty of places to stop and take in the view. Just don’t forget to bring bug spray!

This is a very well kept area. Very cool to see the history tied in with the Oregon Trail.

First, for a low traffic site, it is maintained first rate, very impressed. Several interlocking trails. Great spring with pioneer name inscribed, wagon tracks in a number of locations. I consider this a destination hike.
