“One of the best suburban parks around!”— Kevin Allen
Migratory patterns put this little gem at the center of a very active birding community. You're likely to encounter multiple large camera rigs pointed at birds and smaller ones pointed at people. There are many beautiful views and this is a hub for wedding, family, prom, and engagement photos.
There is only one slight elevation change, and the first and last 0.8 miles or so are paved. Most of the trails here are gravel, fairly firm, and generally wide and flat. There's a public restroom and water fountain near the ramadas along the last stretch, about 0.2 miles from the end.
