Went there with a group of geocachers. This is an old former phosphate mine that was minimally reclaimed by the owners. Has very interesting rolling terrain with lots of trees and nice vistas. Has enough shady areas, so not always in the blazing sun. Many...More

Live very close and had no idea this was here. Very neat place with fun trails. It is old mining area so lots of hills and other unexpected features. Would rate a 5 if bikes were allowed but I understand why they are not.
