We went here to hike. The trails are numerous. Plenty of parking but not free. Interesting that they have a little free library. Office restrooms are real nice.

Great place to run. Nice 3 or 4 mile loop through the woods. I do it all the time. Nothing like off road running.

I believe that there are signs requesting dogs on leash and that you pick up after them. Would only make sense.
