  • Waterfall Trail - A 0.6-mile trail through woodland and prairie habitats.

  • Crystal Trail - A 2.2-mile trail where geode rocks, deer and other wildlife can be seen.

  • Eagle Ridge Equestrian Trail – More than eight miles of horseback riding on some scenic and diverse areas.

  • Wildlife Viewing Tower & Trail - The 21-foot tower is accessed from a wrap-around staircase.. Excellent wildlife viewing area.
