Open Sunrise to Sunset
A lovely preserve near downtown that features a waterfall. You can choose many different routes and all are easy to follow.
Need to Know
There is a chemical toilet in the parking lot. There are composting toilets in the visitors center, but the center is only open M-F 9-4. Quite busy on weekends.
Lots of rocks.
Loop trail through juniper and oak trees. Features a couple of easy stream crossings and a nice waterfall. The terrain is fairly rocky, as most trails are in the area, but the trail is well marked.
The trail begins at the top of a hill, goes down to Bee Creek then back up another hill. There is another down and up to complete the trail. The Visitors Center has some nice exhibits, but is only open on weekdays.
Flora & Fauna
Habitat for the Golden Cheeked Warbler, which I’ve only heard, not spotted. Frequent sightings of road runners and rabbits.
