  • Beautiful place! Farm animals were great to see, trails were great. It was a bit muddy in a few places and I think I got lost for a little while, possibly just followed the wrong path in the woods. But it was an excellent place! Love that it has a fishing pond, my bf and I really enjoyed watching the fish and I'm sure we will be back to fish at some point.
  • I ran a XC race on their course and it was tough. There is a big 1200meter hill but once you get to the top there is beautiful view of the farm down below. I ran a 20:43 5k on the course. On a normal course I would run around 18:10. So those of you who understand that will see how hard the course is based off of my times.
