What a quaint and peaceful place, until you have lots of fun dogs running at you to greet you as you find you way to the dog park/pond near the chapel. Great place to check out. Left a message for my dog that has passed.

So much fun hiking around the land, meeting dogs and their people. Exceptionally happy dogs can be off lease with good voice command control or other devices. The gallery featuring Steven Hunick's Laborador Retriever inspired art work is fun and many reproductions may be purchased....More

There’s no fenced in areas at the mountain. It is all kind of surrounded by thick trees and bushes that sort of act like a fences at the edges of the fields, but there are no actual fences.
