Beautiful! (It helped that it was 70 & sunny in April). We parked at Emerald Dr & hiked out & back from our car only about 2.5 miles, but this area offers a few more miles. Diverse scenery - pine forested area, prairie, a pretty bridge over the river. Even an easy access area for the dog to swim into the river. We really enjoyed it & will definitely be back to do more. Not hilly or challenging, just a nice, easy walk in nature.
