“A little free museum that will take a half hour but rewards with a feel of the island of old. If you look hard you might find the Osprey Nest brick. Also note that the Jackson cabin exhibit was from the plot of land where the Osprey Nest and Eagle Roost reside.”

“Turtleback Mountain Preserve offers trails ranging from broad, gently sloping old logging roads (now abandoned) to narrow paths that meander, sometimes steeply, through mixed forest and open meadows. Whether you’re up for a short dash to the North Valley Overlook (a 15-minute, moderately steep stroll from the north trailhead), a 3-mile round-trip climb to Ship Peak from the south trailhead, or an all-day exploration of the mountain’s many loops, ridges, and overlooks, Turtleback Mountain offers something to suit nearly all adventure-seekers, including kids.”
