We were traveling the wrong time of year to see many flowers, birds or butterflies, but it was still an interesting visit. The old stone bridge was lovely, as was the pond area, where in spite of the chill in the air, there were turtles...More

Sadly we did not get to take part in as much of our annual pass as we hoped, but the handful of times we went it was a great experience. Kids loved walking the trails.

Take day hikes on the many trails leading to a variety of habitats fulled with native wildflowers, ferns, shrubs and other plants. There something in bloom from April through October. Many plants are also interesting in winter.

There is parking available on the site. If there isn't enough there is additional parking down the hill and they probably arrange for a shuttle. Enjoy! Beautiful spot for a wedding.
