  • Nobody there but us. Wonderful!
  • Fantastic well developed walks. One walk gentle, one steeper. The tracks preserve the environment while keeping us safe, so I approve. The forest was beautiful. It was quite busy. There was an spectacular view at the top of the steep walk! Would love to have seen inside the gunning placement on the lower path. Interesting bit of history.
