Head to this 730-acre former farm to enjoy 4 miles of hiking trails, historical and cultural sites, and an interpretive center. The area was once a botanical garden but is slowly transforming back to its native state. In the meantime enjoy wide meadows, a seasonal river, shady forests, and impressive views from mountain summits. Overseen by volunteers and with access restricted by distance and volunteer schedules, this is one of the least-traveled, least-impacted preserves in the county.
