I'm reluctant to praise Owen Conservancy too much because I love the quiet there. I really don't want the place full of lycra-wearing joggers going up and down the trails disturbing people & wildlife. Wonderful place to observe the changes of the seasons. Explore!

It is in a kind of hidden area and easy to overlook. We live close by and find ourselves walking through frequently. It is an easy walk with pleasant spots to stop. I like how quiet and peaceful it is any time of year.

The trail is clean, and while there are hills, the trail isn't long so it is a nice short jog or walk. I've seen some hawks, and large groups of turkeys while walking through here. If you're scared of turkeys, this is not the park...More
