  • Lovely hiking trail! Very easy trails with a creek that looks like something out of a fairy tale. The creek is clear and it's nice getting your feet wet on a hot day! Also lots of wildlife and usually not many people! Love coming here 🙂
  • First, this park is free which is amazing because it offers a lot of great trails. I started at the Warbler Vista area and those trails were pretty easy, but it offered more shade. Then made the 20 mile drive to the Doeskin Ranch which offered some more challenging trails. This parcel of land is a really great place to visit and spend time in, and is not far from the city at all.
