  • Nice easy hike to the river with a minor waterfall at the end, and a way down for swimming should you so choose. Not quite as much wildlife as we were hoping for, but a decent amount of butterflies.....  more »
  • This walk looks short and boring on the park map, but it is neither! Take water with you - it is mostly but not all shaded and can be hot. Keep your eye out for wildlife, as this is a more quiet area....  more »
