A little piece of heaven-there are mountain bikers and walkers throughout here and I feel very safe while walking in the woods. Great for snowshoeing too!

I go to Lynn Woods from time to time to walk with my dog.... the trails are we maintained and fun to hike. My dog enjoys walking and exploring and has discovered chipmunks.... and other wildlife.

Abs stunning views great for family time on a budget. There is so much to see. Just a bit dangerous for children due to cliffs and body of water. If you stay on path all should be well. Reconsider when with toddlers i held my sons hand the whole time.
