  • Moderate to easy hiking trails and wilderness area. Most trails here are unshaded so prepare well during warmer sunny days. I hiked in early March after a strong rainy winter and the hills were lush and green, an abundance of wildflowers we're present and a small creek was flowing in the lower canyon. Overall a nice place to get some exercise and fresh air. There is a parking lot and a nature center but be sure to check the hours before your visit if planning on using these amenities.
  • This place is a gem! I went first time. Had my dogs (leashed) and picked up after (if you bring dogs please do the same) ... So many trails! People walking, riding bikes, running great places to just sit and reflect. I will definitely be coming back! The nature center there also has events. I saw birds, butterflies, squirrel and insects... Good time, enjoy!
