“This is a great city park to take kids. They have a fabulous playground and the large metal circular sculpture that you can see from the highway. This doubles as water feature around noon in the summer for kids to play in- so bring towels, sunscreen, and a picnic lunch.”

Trail
“Absolutely our favorite hiking and running trail. The 5.5mile roundtrip singletrack is beautiful and not as crowded as some other trailheads can get. Going counter-clockwise, the steepest part is the first 2 miles, then it gently goes downhill back to High Drive and then to the parking lot. Stunning views!”
