I signed up for a trail run and was absolutely amazed by the serenity and beauty of this nature reserve. The trail run was 10 miles and I actually walked a great deal of it due to the rocks and terrain. Very beautiful for a hike. Many trails, creeks, waterfall....
beautiful in the fall. went with a group of friends for an impromptu hike. the colors of the leaves were beautiful. the trails were easy to navigate.
Took the grand kids here for a walk, picnic and watching the dogs romp in the dog park. No cars are allowed from the dog park area to the overlook, so its a good safe place for kids---but do watch out for bikers. Better than average, but not quite up to a rating of "very good"

Given the high population within 15 minute radius it's pretty quiet on the trails, which can are well managed, but busy on the main path at the top of the ridge. The views are ok over the city, when the leaves are... 更多

Highlights include the overlook - a scenic view - and the falls - beautiful stream coming down different levels of rocks. Beautiful natural landscape and a bit hilly, so it's a good workout! Even with a... 更多
I have been going to the Reservation multiple times a week for over ten years. It is 2000 acres of protected land with trails, hills and streams. We have been taking our dogs there to run and go swimming. Dogs are supposed to stay leashed, but responsible owners let them off leash and respect joggers and others without dogs. One... 更多
