  • Many historical sites and monuments,, over 35 miles of hiking trails.
  • We come here a couple times a year for a nice long walk with beautiful scenery. It's free entertainment and a good work out. It can be very romantic as well as very fulfilling. Parking is free and there are always plenty of spots to park. We haven't tried them yet, but they also offer tours of the park. I highly recommend for anyone.
