    Lots of hiking options. Trails are overgrown, patrons not great about cleaning up after themselves or dogs. No facilities on trails. Bring supplies, carry out your garbage. Rate trails as moderate

    Good hiking. Poor signage and limited facilities. BYO water, hand wipes, etc. The dog park is really awesome though. I'm definitely taking my pup here soon. He will love it.

    What a wonderful place to have a romantic picnic, bring a blanket, music and enjoy your company in a nice shaded spot.

    Great place for a jog. If you need water there is a fountain near the dog park. Also at&t cell service sucks along crest dr (in non-car area).
