“Well maintained trails”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I visited for a casual walk on the well maintained trails. These are moderate to easy walks that wind their way through the property in wooded and shaded areas, with small streams along the way. There are roads around the perimeter that offer rolling terrain for those wanting to work up a sweat walking or biking.
