Late afternoon walk with dog. Paths were clean and clear. Guests were friendly and polite. Trails are marked for bikes, hikers or horses. Had no issue finding my way and staying on the hiking trails.

I am fortunate to have grown up on Saltillo Road, a wonderful place to wander. Let your imagination run wild as you travel through the wilderness, much as our ancestors did.

Some reviewers complain about the highway noise and yes, you can hear Rt 77 from the trails, but it's not intrusive and you can still hear the *many* birds, the flow of Salt Creek, and the breeze through the trees. It would be a great...More
