Nice hiking facility and great exhibits for children in visitor's center. Returned to hike and visit after many years and was pleasantly surprised with the upgrades to the facility. Gift shop and small museum is worth a visit.

This is the perfect family-friendly destination. Our young children loved exploring the exhibits inside the building, feeding geese & fish at the pond, and playing at the Nature Scape. The onsite pavilions provide the perfect spot for a picnic lunch.

The wilderness Center has trails of varying difficulty and lengths, a lovely lake with a gazebo that extends out over the lake to observe hungry fish. Different ecosystems are represented here including a beautiful Prairie area. A modern multi-story building houses hands on exhibits for...More
