Few elevation changes here and there... scenery changes from deep forest with narrow lane to wider lane or to open prairie? In summary, enough changes in scenery to make it interesting for 5.3 confirmed hiking miles. I saw a white tailed deer, lots of chipmunks and white geese or swan. There is no washroom, no water fountain, no trash can and no markings on trails to tell you where you are.

Fantastic hike with lots of trails for hiking and biking. Short trails in meadows and long ones in pine forests. Beautiful.

Fun hike with some nice look outs. Take you're hammock and relax in the woods.

So many great lookout places and several trail heads to experience a new home every time!

I love going out to Al Sabo, it is actually the first place I started going to for hiking. I was taken back by the sheer beauty of the place, natural untouched. Everytime I go it feels like I'm on a different trail. great place to take your dogs- they'll have a blast!!

Trail markings hard to follow the first time, but great outdoor landscape to explore.
