these trails might be in the middle of a suburb..but you would never know it. criss-crossing trails and beautiful nature allows you to escape and get some much needed exercise as well. :) we had our engagement photos taken here and the scenery was ideal.

The streams that run through this place are gorgeous. The trails are nicely kept and it's an easy walk. You may get lost though! Luckily you're not far from an exit at anytime. Such a relaxing place

You can enter in a variety of places but I do suggest behind Sherwood Jr. high school. This trail is very lovely and simple to navigate with signs at many points . It contains a babbling brook and a variety of large trees... More
