Wife and I spent a few hours walking some of the trails. They are wide, well marked and well maintained. A nice place to escape and enjoy the beauty of the area. Staff is great and we enjoyed talking to them.

Had a wonderful talk on butterflies and damselflies and other pollinators under the outdoor pavilion at Broadmoor wildlife sanctuary. The talk was followed by a slow stroll through the meadows to see what we learned thriving in real life!
