Winter trails for skiing and snowshoeing as well as hiking. Bridges over the creek which at times can be running full. Great for any outdoorsman.

This is hard to find and definitely private, maybe too private. Don’t go alone. There are very steep trails one could fall on and be stuck in a wet ravine, many, many bugs, Interesting, but go prepared with a partner.

I lived here for 25 years before I discovered the park. Now I go year around. Don't expect cell service on the trails but you can log some serious hilly miles if you want. Or you can enjoy a leisurly walk on your lunch hour....More

It's a fun place to go and relax and take a walk. One of the better places to have a picnic and/or a family reunion. The Park Ranger is a neat guy, too!!!!

Nice parked tucked away off the highway. Plenty of picnic shelters and playground equipment. Room for a big gatherings with spacious lawn areas. Lots of walking trails along and through the creek and woods areas.

This is a beautiful park just off highway 169, with trees, picnic areas, a small stream, and trails. All in all, a great stop if you are on a long car trip.

This area is really beautiful, particularly if you can come on a nice fall day. For me, there's just something special about the changing colors, a bright sun against a blue sky mixed in with a view of the water. If you are into photography,...More
