Discover almost 2 miles of trails within this 80 acre park, with gorgeous westward mountain views at sunset. The most popular trail is the paved Interpretive Trail or the gravel mini-trail down to the edge of Oberon Lake. The paved trails are ADA accessible, and the gravel trails are stroller friendly. 

There are also many areas in the park that are designated wildlife resting areas, marked by signage, that indicates limited public access. This is to allow the many wildlife species ample space to thrive within the park, especially as most wildlife only use the park as a rest stop along their travels on the nearest wildlife corridor-the Farmers Highline Canal.
