The rolling hills and flat tops are wonderful to travel around. Wildlife of many different kinds and clear running creeks. There are many trails to take some easy some harder, but all worth it.

I had an hour or so to spend before dinner and was able to drive up to the park and explore. I took a 2 mile hike and had a great time. A very nice park with many varied hiking and biking trails.

If you have time, this is a good place to hang around from the normal routine or work. It's good to get fresh air and enjoy the walking in the nature to get more exercise.
