I attended a 5-mile race to benefit Lime Creek today. Very friendly crew, nice shirt. And I got a 5-mile tour of the park and spent quite a bit of time in the building which has many exhibits both animal and plant.

This center has a variety of trails from paved to grass (just watch out for the snakes in the grass). We enjoyed walking around the area and were pleasantly surprised by the butterfly garden and the incredible view of numerous birds feasting on the feeders...More

The natural beauty of the trees and trails is outstanding. They also keep up the trails for cross country skiing. IT is a nice hike to/from the Center and the trail head.

An old cement quarry and dump site that has been reclaimed into a great nature center. The remains of a very old brewery can be seen. Some great trails to hike, neat things to see inside the visitors center and loads of wildlife to see.
