The setting here is so nice and worth $7. Not many place to see wetlands around Pikes Peak area but this is a wetland area. I have been twice this summer and it is not crowded. Hiking trails are not long but nice.

This is a small park overall. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in experience. Easy access from woodland park. Great place to take the kids or grand kids fishing. Did I mention the view of pikes peak? Stunning.

You and your family can enter the park for a small fee. It is relatively small, especially the lake, It is an easy walk all the way around the lake. There are some interpretative signs. Two of our group saw a beaver building its lodge....More
