Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center reviews
They have very nice displays about the animals and plants in the area. Many different types of displays to keep things interesting. We hiked around the hills and really enjoyed the paths.

The trails provided a medium to easy hiking experience. The trails were well marked. There was quite a bit of vertical hiking. Very manageable for two senior citizens

My kids and I always have a fun time. We love walking the trails and seeing the animals and displays inside the building. They always have different activities throughout the year that we enjoy.
Beautiful day, gorgeous trails, amazing Host and Guide Jeannie in Nature Center. Perfect day. Great exhibits in center for kids too!
