Excellent place to run/walk/hike. Very few bikes and horses. Plenty of elevation and other challenges for the more advanced athlete.

Need a local spot to get a workout? Try the trails at Peters Canyon Regional Park. It is a nice place to hike with your dog. During the fall and winter, you can also walk through the bird sanctuary.
