One of my favorite areas to spend time hiking and cycling. Well preserved natural areas running along the Rocky River. Hiking at the Royalview picnic area is hilly with valleys and pine trees. Some small waterfalls hidden along the trails. There are picnic tables and open spaces as well at the upper parking lot.
This is a beautiful and scenic walk/run area. It is protected and quite safe for a pleasant exercise and encountering the seemingly random deer family! ☺

Enjoyed a few hours by the water just listening to nature and reading. A perfect way to spend a few hours outdoors when someone has physical limitations.
