Great trails to bring your K9's on. The scenery doesn't change much but it is pretty to be in those old trees. Summer and fall have much more to look at. I usually go here for a weekend hike when the dog parks are over crowded. Still see a lot of people but there is space to spread out on the trails. Nice wide paths.
Can be really muddy but other than that the family and I love it!!! Only 40min from Rochester
Great hike any time of the year!
My family loved this place, the waterfall is the best part!
Beautiful and enjoyed the cooling down by the waterfall.
Great for a family outing!!
Great day hike. Wonderful tall Oaks with streams and a beautiful small waterfall.
