I was thoroughly impressed at what this unexpected gem of a natural area and trails had to offer. Something for just about everyone and within a short drive for a short getaway for the everyday worker. Long hike, short hike, 1-18 mile run, bike paved, bike unpaved, mostly disabled accessible areas, fishing, bird watching, camp, group event pavilions, shade. Hidden among miles of farmland and along the river. Amazing variety of massive ancient trees along the river trails. You can park at the Natural Preserve Area or the Old Applewhite Rd, which cuts the long trail in half.
