If you’re a nature lover, this place is heaven! Hundreds of acres beautiful forested hills, miles and miles of trails and an almost endless variety of tree species. I could get lost in here for days. And I almost did. I recommend a map!

Absolutely gorgeous and fascinating place to visit. The 1-mile loop contains all of the trees we had wanted to see - massive Redwoods, Sequoias, Douglas Firs, etc. No charge to visit and was the most rewarding hour or two of our trip.
