While it is great to have a nature preserve in the city, this one is too close to noisy roadways and, in the summer, very noisy "concerts",featuring drums and screaming vocals and such. Not very conducive to a nature felling.

Enjoyed the views! The paths are ambling, well-kept. Must be able to climb steep stairs for exiting pathways. Otherwise, great nature walk with wonderful views!

I visited Hemlock Bluffs as a child, but I had not been back in so long. We went out with friends this past weekend to do a little hike and it was really nice! We ended up doing both sides and got in 2 miles....More

Great walking trails with adequate places to rest. The trails are very well kept and it is such an awesome, peaceful experience to walk around, see nature and be outdoors!

We love taking our dog here for a long walk, or short since they have different trails. Not too strenuous but definitely burn some calories!

Lovely well maintained trails. Great for dog walking, walking or running Wood chip paths are nicer than asphalt. Several trail options. Great for kids.

We stopped by the park with our 2 and 3 yr old kids. The trails were well maintained and the nature center was informative and had engaging displays. I'm sure in spring and summer the scenery is even prettier. We will definitely be going back...More

Great place to be one with nature! The Hemlocks are amazing! They are tall and the branches come out at exact right angles. The natural bluff is beautiful!
