This park is a mostly woodlands, but small areas of hill top prairie still exist. The views from atop the hills here are nice, but, being near a big city, are not the wildest around (many buildings are visible if looking towards the SW). The trails take you through forested gullies (often with creeks) up to the top Loess Hills where prairie persists and where I have seen Soapweed Yucca, Snow on the Mountain, Hoary Puccoon and more. At the botton of one gulley, Turtle Lake sits, making for a nice picnic spot. This park is being worked on so that one day there may be more prairie, more savannah, and less dense and out of place forests. Do not forget to visit Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center, a little bit south of the park's west entrance on Hwy 12.
