Lots of trees and shade here. Mostly flat with walkers and bikers. Took two boys and they enjoyed all of the bridges and we walked off the path to throw rocks in the water.

This is a great, easy walk for all ages. The creek is easy to get down to and is perfect for letting your dog (Black Lab) get off the leash and wade around. Fun for kids...

This was a surprise at first, because it's an actual forest in the city. It's filled with bikers ans I was almost ran down by one not paying attention. Check this out it's very scenic and like I said surprising.
Great nature area - a forest in the city!

What a great park. Located right off of a very busy section of US75, you can enter this nature area and forget you are in the city. Paved trails lead through tall trees and bridges arch over several streams. If you like geocaching, this is a good place for a few finds!
