Hiking in the preserve if in summer consider morning or evening. The preserve area for hiking has no shade and is very hot mid-day. but is beautiful and the views are stunning. There are geocaches in the preserve to make your hike more interesting.

What a wonderful organization. Miles of trails to hike or ski. Our group enjoyed a wonderful snowshoe tour and our guide, Hunter, couldn't have been more enthusiastic or knowledgable. From learning about the history of this great wetlands preserve to chasing animal tracks, I thoroughly...More

The 3rd floor is cool for viewing Elk and other creatures off in the distance. Especially fun for our kids was the indoor rock wall.
