This is the ideal spot for a family hike. I've come here multiple times with my 5 and 8 year old to hike around the various trails. This is a great spot for bird watchers and wildlife observation. The nature center is a nice added bonus for the kids (and adults) for visiting at the beginning or end of your hike. Park hours are dawn to dusk; Nature Center hours are Tues-Sat 8:30am-4:30pm, Sunday noon-4:30pm and closed on Mondays.
