Great place to walk

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 frequently with the boys.

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!

A good place for a short to medium walk through nature. Bring bug spray if it's the bug season. You should plan at least 1 hour but could make it longer if you do multiple trails. Nature center onsite is a nice stop for the kids.

This is a wonderful place to meet nature. The center has guided walks with trained naturalists or you may walk on your own. Beautiful seasonal nature experience.

A great retreat from the hustle and bustle...right in town! Great for leisurely hike or pet walks. Several trail lengths to choose from.

Had some time to kill so visited to take a hike. Great trails with varied habitat and very nice staff. The visitors center had a very nice exhibit as well.

This "nature preserve" is an excellent, shaded preserve with a few excellent walking / hiking trails. On the one side, there is a trail that goes down to the river with just enough steps to get you some exercise. The whole place is heavily shaded and just feels cooler than the rest of town. The other side has meandering trails... More

We walk, run, take the grand kids there where they have fun. It is really relaxing, a few minutes from home.
