Very nice wooded area and reservoir. There are several optional paths, each with different types of tree. Takes about an hour to walk around everything if you are quick and don't stop.

Did this walk, not much to see, needed some sign posts for directions for visitors and there were many paths going in different directions and we did not know which one to take
