Great selection of trails and difficulty. Typically secluded and very quiet, and also a good option for mountain biking and trail running.

My mother, sister, dog, and I went on a hike here. We were very impressed by the well groomed trails and will definitely go again! There are miles and miles of trails to explore with several lakes and ponds, any age or ability can enjoy!...More

Great for a walk, hike, kayak or trail run but really shines in the single track. Many trails of all levels. No freeride stuff but lots of rock gardens and some good flowey lines. Some good climbing as well.

at any given time you'll see horseback riders, backpackers, hikers, dogs, kayakers, and sketch artists here. It's a great place to visit, take a long walk, or just sit.
