    A good set of trails for a nice workout outdoors. The toughest one is the Spring Ridge trail to the Windy Hills summit which climbs 1400 ft in 2.8 miles.

    Hamms's Gulch sometimes gets muddy, for no apparent reason, so I suggest boots. But the trail is gorgeous, with its redwoods and ferns.

    On hot days, take the Ridge Trail along the creek. You can also bring dogs to this great hiking area! Read more

    Bring a blanket and come here to search for shooting stars (or just to look at the night sky).

    For a quick hike take the Betsy Crowder Trail but its worth the time to Windy Hill Summit.
