A really nice place for a forest walk
Feb. 2020
Don't expect to see a jaguar, most folks don't. However, this is a lovely preserve offering a variety of hiking trails. Most are quite easy and relatively short (45 minutes and up to two miles.) The one hike, which we took, to Ben's Bluff was quite strenous but worth the effort for a panoramic view. A couple of nice waterfalls can be accessed on the hikes. If you have a rental car, this is well worth the trip. A commercial tour might be a bit pricey.

Guide was good!

No jaguars to be seen (I kind of got the impression they were quite elusive) but did see a poisonous pit viper. Learned a lot but be prepared with lots of bug spray.
