I took a picture of the map at the trailhead, but trails themselves were confusing and not clearly marked. Even with the map on my phone I think we got on the wrong trail- it was narrow and had big drop-offs. Since we had kids,...More

This was wonderful for staff and families who came together for a picnic under the pavilion! The trail was also a big hit as was the play area.

The blue trail is the most challenging with the stone stairs. This is a must if you are wanting to connect with nature, the views are amazing. Pack a lunch to eat once at the top!

The property includes the Lyle Owen homestead, originally built in 1911, as well as a barn and almost 2,000 feet of hand-built stone walls. There are picnic tables and porch swings at the trail head near the old Owen Homestead. The trails take you along...More

My review for runners and trail runners. For those who like combination of hiking and slow running this would be nice. Technical, well marked, difficulty rating on map i accurate. The blue trail down to river is very, very steep with series of winding steps...More
