Natural Areas & Trails

Trail Update


All ADA trails have suffered major erosion due to recent storms. Please use caution on ADA trails. Thank you for your patience while we work on clean up and repair of the parks. 
 

Rules & Guidelines


Our natural areas are living, breathing places with a wide variety of plants and critters. Please help us care for these beautiful places; they are working hard to clean our water and our air. All park rules apply. Please follow these additional guidelines:

  • Take only photos, leave only footprints.
  • Pack it in, pack it out.
  • Campfires, glass containers, motor vehicles, weapons, horses, and camping are not permitted.
  • Stay on established trails.
