  • A quiet sanctuary so close to town with multiple trails accessible by hiking and driving. Also has a community center, playground and huge field of grass for running around. Interesting topography with a beautiful landscape of ferns, fir and redwoods. Feels like you're in a faraway, ancient place that is both magical and majestic yet so easy to get to
  • Awesome community park with great trails for scenery and photo opportunities! There is a huge open grass area to lay in the sun or shade as well as bench areas and a basketball court. The playground also has unique play areas for kids, my nephew thoroughly enjoyed the digging experience of the playground!
