The forest is a perfect place to get away from city noise and enjoy a walk in the trees. Fall leaves are amazing and the trail system is well maintained.

We walk quite often in the forest. It's a beautiful place for a quiet stroll or long walk depending on what you want. The only thing that would make it better for me was to have a few more rest stops along the way.

Lovely trails through native prairie vegetation, including a marsh area provide a pleasant place for a long or short walk (your choice) right within the city. It's a good opportunity to experience the prairie. The day we walked we came upon a deer grazing.
