This is a very beautiful area. The warped and scattered trees are amazing. Great workout as well.

A great hike for bird watching, and the views are gorgeous. I was married here in these woods. I met an owl here once as well. Sanctuary Woods is one of my faves.

Great walk to get your heart rate up (those stairs!) and see nature all around. Stumbled upon an owl once perched under one of the bridges - amazing!

Great, easy hike in the snow. Trail was marked with others boot prints. Really beautiful views and very peaceful.

Wish it was a little longer and more views of the lake. But a nice walk that gets your heart rate up

Stairs, stairs and more stairs. I took my dog on this trail and even he was pooped after going up the initial stairway. Great quick hike though. It only took 30-45 minutes to complete.

Very peaceful and relaxing. Brought my puppy with me and we hiked barefoot, due to the trail being sandy and me wearing scandals. :)
