We love this place, great walks and even a little farm my son love to look at all of their animals. There are plenty of wild animals too, so keep scanning all around you.

A moderate level hike through a few hills. Doesn't get too steep but you'll be going up quite a bit (and then down). There isn't a ton of tree coverage so bring your sunscreen and avoid during the summer.

SO many trails from level to steep going up into the coastal range here. Watch for wild animals because there have been several Mountain Lion sightings here. Many deer and turkeys roaming the area.

This is one of our regular local hiking spots. It has hills and long trails. You can have a few mile trail, or a 10 miler. Scenic hilltop views and some forest as well. Has a small farm for the kids. However, parking is limited,...More
