    Large park with many trails

    It's a good size park, and plenty of trails to choose from. They all start and end in the parking lot. The longest loop is over 3 miles. Depending on the time of the day, you might have the park all for yourself. People would usually keep dogs on leash until they reach the forest, then you can let your dog free. Generally everyone is well behaved, I had no complaints about dog not being on leash in the forest.

    Dogs must be on leash

    $$$ Fine for any dogs off leash here.

    We loved this hike we tried for the first time today. The only reason it doesn't get a full 5'bones' would be because of people not picking up their dogs waste. Both of us came back feeling great!

    Must be on a leash

    It is a nice trail or trails. But when you get there the signs clearly state... Dogs must be on a leash at all times. Or it a $90 fine. So if your going because it says off leash.. This sight is wrong. But I do recommend going anyways because it's a fun way to spend the day with your dog.
