  • Don't bring your dogs there and wear really tough shoes. There is broken glass all over the paths. It is very dangerous to doggie feet! It looks like people are partying there and smashing their bottles. The vegetation is very tall in the picnic area too. It's a shame. We hadn't been there in a while. Won't be going back any time soon.
  • A beautiful place to hike, take in the views or enjoy a picnic lunch. Hiking trails are blazed so you know where you're going. Some of the hills are rather strenuous if you don't hike a lot while other areas not so much. There are some great areas to get some beautiful pictures but some are also very dangerous. Know your abilities, be safe, don't do anything foolish and you'll enjoy your time here.
