We loved visiting this place and had a really great overall experience, but be aware that there is no water offered along the trail unless you’ve got cash. That would have been great to know before we got over a mile in. Not much info was provided. We rented bikes, but it was all pretty pricey. The views are incredible and I think it’s worth the expense at least once. Everything is wonderfully well kept. That alone is worth seeing. Going here gives you such an appreciation for nature and the outdoors. I highly recommend it!

A 3.8 mile one way trail (with sites branching off of it) that I was able to job 2.2 miles into before it was getting close to closing time. Easily the best nature trail I've ever been on. I will make it back here one day to finish the trail. Still full of incredible views. Waterfalls what seems like every 100 yards, eagles overhead, trail following the river, and if you can make it to the end there's an overlook for bison. Drove 2 hours and jogged 4 miles, worth it!

A beautiful place to enjoy nature. Park entrance is not overpriced for a privately funded park. Some of the amenities such as the tram and bike rentals are a bit inflated however. In order to secure a spot in the Tram is is highly recommended to book ahead of time. The bikes are first come first serve so come early if you want your pick. The restaurant has one of the best brisket sandwiches I have ever had and the sundaes for dessert sure hit the spot after hiking outside all day. There are no food or drink spots along the almost 4 mile path so plan ahead before you start your day. My kids loved the little tree house and educational talk at the amphitheater. It is clear that much of the landscape is not organic, but it is still a beautiful place.

Wow, what an interesting place to visit. Johnny Morris did a wonderful job preserving this little piece of heaven for all of us to enjoy. The staff was super accommodating and nice. Rachel was our tour guide and she was so energetic and engaging and made our tour wonderful. We opted to get the tram ride which was an out and back route that turned around at the wildlife habitat. Can't say I have been that close to Bison, long horn cattle, and elk all in one trip. So amazing!! There is also a great playground/treehouse for the kids (and adults) to explore. Also the nature center is so informative and engaging as well. All around a great place to spend a day or partial day.

This Nature park is beautiful. We rented bikes for about $15 each. The trail is 6.5 miles round trip, and there are several waterfalls to see. The grounds are mowed. You can eat at their restaurant. It looked like the average pricing for eating was $17-25. We didn't have time to eat because we spent so much time on the paved trail taking pictures. We saw a group that was taking a tour on their trams that got to stop and eat in a pavilion on the trail. There is also a chapel where you can get married. It was gorgeous overlooking a waterfall.
