I come here regularly with my wife and kids and dog. It's a big open area with lots of hills, and also a wooded area with a pond. It's good for seeing leaves change, sledding, kite flying, or just hiking

We enjoy hiking and even trail running through all of the various trails in Callahan. Sometimes we even bring our dogs along to for the fun.

Hostile place if your dogs are challenged by off leash dogs—survival of the fittest here, and very clannish. We were not welcome with a leashed dog skittish of other dogs, all off leash. Also, today a mountain biker chose to relieve himself in the pond...More

I was walking with friends on one of the trails when an off leash dog attacked my friend until the dogs owners called the dog. My friend was shaken by the experience and wasn't bitten, but it spoiled an otherwise beautiful afternoon. Dogs shouldn't be...More

Love walking my dogs here. Not the best for small dogs, but larger dogs can have a wonderful time off leash there.
