  • There are some great trails packed into this park. My favorites are 16 and 12 on the NW side of the mountain for hiking, and for biking the spur that goes out to Grace's Gap.  more »
  • I went zip lining with my sister and nephew on the mega zip and highly recommend it. It was a ton of fun and totally worth the money. It is a great day or few hours adventure for locals or visitors...  more »
  • This is definitely my go to place for hiking! Awesome trails. And thank you so much for the awesome high ropes experience.... My girls had a great time!
  • We've had tournaments at this park now a couple times now. The great thing about this park is that there are a couple of food trucks in an event we run late and need a bite to eat. There is plenty of parking and the lot is well lit. This park has about 8 well maintained fields. Several people had dogs with them which is nice to know we can bring our without any issues. Kids had a great time playing and watching the tournament!
