DESCRIPTION

With a variety of play areas and a well maintained staging area featuring shaded tables, BBQ grills and restrooms, this is a great choice for a day of play with the kids. The main trail starts out as a long and easy sand wash then gets a little chunkier as it heads up into the hills. There is also an enclosed tot-lot for the kids with a circuit of rolling bumps and banked turns. The area is for day use only.
