Fodor's Review

Enjoy the natural beauty of woodlands, wetlands, and prairie at this 1,700-acre outdoor oasis. Hike some of the 16 miles of manicured trails, or drive or bike along 9 miles of paved roads. Trees, shrubs, and vines bloom year-round, and every season is magnificent: spring's flowering trees, summer's canopy-covered trails, fall's dazzling foliage, and winter's serene beauty. Bike, snowshoe, and cross-country ski rentals are available. If you have kids, check out the award-winning

4-acre Children's Garden, which is stroller (as well as wheelchair) friendly. A one-acre maze garden will delight as you wind your way to the lookout platform.
