This is nice place for a few hours for families with small children, and/or people looking for a pleasant walk. While the trails are not rigorous, you can spend a morning or afternoon here and have a picnic.

My mom and I hiked the trail all the way to the top of the mountain with 3 young children. Once we got to the top we couldn't believe the view. We will hike again.

We really enjoyed our walk ! We were lucky to see beavers, and we also saw many beautiful birds. And it was a very peaceful walk. We found it just a little bit expensive for a walk.

Hi, I have a couple of questions, Is there a fee, is there adequate parking, I'm planning on hiking either Nov 13, 14 or 15. Is there hunting allowed there? Is there an open facility then and if so, what does it include.... bathrooms?

Yes there is a fee, I remember @ $5-10/adult.There is definitely no hunting and they don't allow dogs. Plenty of parking is available.
