Nice place for an easy/moderate hike. Not a very long trail, didn't see any trail markings. I think you could spend about 1-2 hours at most hiking in here. Don't forget you can get across the road to the Webster conservation area too. This felt a little larger and overall more enjoyable hike with a few more ups and downs. The Webster conservation entrance wasn't very marked at all except for a white board that said public was welcome to explore the area till dusk. Hope they mark this up better.

Came here for climbing a few times. The main cliff is right by the entrance. It was easy to walk around to the top of the cliff to set ropes. There are a few good vertical cracks but other than that the climbing is very difficult. If you poke around you'll find "Hammond Eggs" which is a circle of boulders with a few technical routes, bring a pad for spotting. The overhang is usually chalked up.

Came here for rock climbing and ended up hiking a bit. The rock is great for climbing and the trails are well maintained. Cool park if you live nearby, but not necessarily a destination spot.
