Beautiful place to do some light hiking. Reasonable pricing on native plants and a very interesting history. The Membership price is also very reasonable and is good for access to over 100 other nature preserves around the country. Highly recommended to visit.
Amazing spot to go to for the day. Pack and lunch, put on your sneakers, get a bottle of water and just soak up the beauty. Great programs for kiddos.
