Take a stroll through the old growth forest without leaving town. This is a rare gem and a treat for locals and tourists alike.

Always a good place to get away from it all. Walk the trails. Look at the flora and fauna. Beautiful streams and bridges.

Trails are well marked. Terrain is reasonable. Setting is very pretty. Great nature center with helpful staff. Clean restrooms. People need to obey leash rules for their dogs however. I guess some people do not think rules apply to them, sadly.
