  • Easy walking paths and super cool 'tunnel' like growths. These plants grow to massive sizes and left as 'wild' is an incredible sight. I can't wait to come back when they bloom!!  more »
  • Very nice. The best blossoms we have ever seen here this year. A pleasant walk through and under the rhododendrons, hemlocks, and huge white pines. Plus we always do the wildflower loop.
  • Short and sweet. I was looking for something more than what it had but for a very short stroll in the woods it's nice. Well kept trail, parking area and portapotties were clean.
