  • This park has endless trails and lots of water. I hike here a lot with my dogs. It's very peaceful during the early morning. Just be careful, the rattle snakes are out this time of year.
  • Lovely place for a longer nature walk or a light hike depending on which of the two main trails you take. Once entering the park via the entrance gate, you will find a table and picnic area. Taking the left trail will give you a narrow path and a nice shaded walk path. The right path is a large trail often taken by horse riders and others looking to soak up sun and enjoy a leisurely stroll. It's a lovely park but not for people looking to have a nice and strenuous hike.
