Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
February 12 feel of wilderness right outside of town
park review stars; one to five
September 10 Trail markings by Maggie
park review stars; one to five While there is a few trails to choose from they are not well marked. Not enough markings and confusing signage make getting turned around quite probable. The trail map, a print out from their web site, is not precise. Just a little bit more attention to details could make this park much more pleasant.
