Just a great place to hike. The red trail is about 6.7 miles now and amazing. I tend to start at Chipmunk Drive on the green trail "wetlands trail". Keep an eye out for snakes they like to hang ouy. There are some areas that get a little rough but most of the trail is easy. Some of the hills have a steep grade and after 6 miles you can get fatigued. Be safe out there.

What a beautiful and large park. As of this review, first time being there. Went far into the wooded trails and was a beautiful sight. Views are immaculate. Can't wait to come back.
