I've been here a few times with my two young daughters. It is a real easy walk and they really enjoy it. Its is a micro environment like a mini rainforest. Off season, anytime besides the July bloom, it is very quiet.

Larger than I thought it would be. Cool trails. Natural setting. Unfortunately they were not in bloom yet. Nice short hike.

I was the only one in the park on a Friday morning in late January. It was pretty cool running down the main trail with all of the Rhododendrons drooping. I bet is it something else in full bloom. There had been a number of...More

This is a great little park if you are in the area. Would I drive 100 or even 50 miles out of my way for it, probably not. If I was in the area, looking for a hike/walk in the woods or a place to...More
