    The ridge trail is really cool. great views and you feel like you are out in nature even though it's highway accessible. The trail along the river is paved and flat enough for strollers and such. Some of the other trails are a bit more challenging. Some good local access points are parking below the bridge on river road or near the power lines on S. Hilltop.

    Paved and unpaved trails. River access. Great scenic while through the valley.

    This park is awsome! And yes, you really can get in a 20 mile hike without even crossing over one step! The biking trails are pretty extreme too. But, if biking up and down hills isn't for you, you can still get a decent ride in. Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, and playgrounds and picnic areas to boot!
