Strong Winds early in the morning. Park here to take tunnel under road to climb to either High Line Trail along Canyon, 4m loop back by Riverside Trail/ or continue straight for the Bonneville trail to Green Canyon. Nice water way views in park.

The little lake created by first dam is the centerpiece of this beautiful little park. There is ample shade and lawn for picnicking and lounging in the sun. The lake is just right for wading and canoeing, and provides a home for ducks and geese....More
