Comments: The preserve has some attractive wooded areas and some grassy fields with wild flowers. Unfortunately, there are so many interconnected trails that it is nearly impossible to stay on the right path. The first time that I hiked here, I had to exit the park and use the public streets to get back to my car. The next time, I used a GPS, which helped considerably. I think that this hike would be much more enjoyable if one main trail were clearly marked.
