pretty steep climbs in parts but overall easy and pretty sites

A lot to see and not enough time to get it all in. Great place to explore nature with the family.

A get away within the city limits. A short hike with a a few steep cardio hills thrown in. Good place to see wildlife at certain times and an array of plant life. You can make the hike longer by connecting to the Maple Hollow trail or the Cape Bike Trail.
