The staff was friendly, clean restrooms at the visitors center. We only had time to hike the fossil trail. It was awesome. We plan to come back and hike the other trails.

I loved PEEC ever since I went to summer camp there as a kiddo. I later became a counselor. Now as an adult out of town I rarely frequent... A shame because it really is a local gem! They have great activities for all ages...More
