Love all the elevated trails through the woods. Great place to get out and enjoy nature. Will have to come back to this place in the future.

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to every soldier that we've lost that gave us our freedom! Without them I wouldn't had an amazing day walking the trails and taking so many pictures. I am grateful.
Some of the trails are in need of some work but it looks like that is in progress. I will be checking them out this spring and summer. I went back and the trails were in good shape but after all the rain recently take bug spray
