Absolutely gorgeous forest! Flowers which attract butterflies. Deer. Paved path with some hills. Well maintained. Bathrooms on the southern end.

Loved this trail the kids had an amazing time and we learned about all kinds of new plants and flowers. Your foot wear will get wet so have a back up pair at the car.

This trail is pretty awesome! Everything is very well maintained and the trails are clearly marked! One of the scenic overlooks was closed due to a high water level but the other two were beautiful. Your feet will probably get wet.

This was a very cool experience. It was pretty wet, but all the more fun! Only problem was the plastic boardwalk gets very hot for dog paws. I wouldn't recommend bringing your dogs here. My poor husband had to carry our 65lb hound back to the car.

Trails were very wet today, but what do you expect when the trails are floating docks? Very fun and easy, anyone could do it.

I could not find this trail. I looked for it both along Pasma Ave and Centre Ave. Is it still there? It's sounds like a nice area.

Beautiful. The floating walkway thru the bog was amazing.

Some very cool and rare species in this wetland bog area, wetlands and bogs are an endangered ecosystem themselves and because of this you can see some incredibly neat species of moss, pitcher plants and orchids (all of which are endangered but not going extinct). Very cool stuff!

On the wetland they have pitcher plants!! Pretty cool plant! Watch out for them! They're going extinct!

This is a nice trail but it's very short and there are houses around every corner in sight of the trail. This would be a great trail for kids because there is a playground and pavilion near the parking lot.

The portions of the trail that go over the water are a floating dock system, there is a sign that says "Potential For Wet Shoes", more like potential for wet everything, in spots the water sprays up at least five feet in the air.
