Not much to see but very peaceful and relaxing we loved it.

Brief walk but a beautiful "must see" if in the area.

This is a very beautiful trail with waterfalls, large boulders, and lots of hidden gems (side trails).

There are three main trails here; a 1-mile, 2-mile amd 5K. Each trail is marked with a different color badge, Blue, Green and Yellow. The trails are easy and a good place to take the whole family.
There are lots of information boards and kiosk, marking plants and trees and also some information about the area.
The main reason I don't rate this 5-stars... too much civilization in the area. Two main roads border the edges of the preserve, so road noise is distracting, The preserve also boarders some hosing neighborhoods and in areas you are looking into someones back yard.
No dogs are allowed in the preserve. In spite of the detractors, it still a good overall place to take a hike and have family and friends join in.

Easy hike, cool waterfall, cool rocks to see and climb :)

Purposely kept it short today (working on my pup's stamina), but it was absolutely lovely. Serene. Good for the spirit.

5.3 mile loop, nice trails and beautiful woods.

Not well marked but a nice challenge in an urban environment. Short, technical.
