We always love hiking here. I will take my daughter on the smaller loop by the dam because it's easier for her. She loves watching the boats line up for the locks and the fisherman. We also look forward to seeing the turtles. They always seem to have a ton of turtles on the loop by the dam. The larger loop is hilly and can be difficult for a kid to do. I have taken her on it. We also like watching the little fish in Lake Defiance. We walk on the floating dock to see them all. By the dam though, we have seen bald eagles, which is always amazing to see. They do nest somewhere nearby. Always a good time, exploring nature with the little one.
We had lunch out doors with out of town relatives. Simply meal but really quiet so we could talk and watch grand kids run and play on jungle gym. O never would have though of this but must highly recommend it. Place was clean, no litter. Well taken care of.
