Lynn Woods is a magical find. I have been going there since I was an infant and I took my family there for picnics, hiking and even horseback riding.

Easy to find; large parking area, great walking trails; Too bad there aren't more waste barrels available. Picked up a grocery sack of trash myself; Many folks walking dogs there and NOT cleaning up after them!!!!

Premier mountain biking roads and single track for beginners and experts. Stay on the gravel roads for easy to challenging peddling, wide roads with occasional steep to very steep grades.
