Enjoy the serene creek and beauty of the outdoors while being just a short drive to city attractions! The road to the property is the old railroad line and continues as a walking path - start your mornings with a relaxing stroll through nature!
The stream is stocked by the Fish & Boat Commission every year, which encourages catch-and-release. Spend a day on the water practicing your fishing skills to see if you can snag a trout! Take out the canoe or 4 kayaks for pleasant afternoon floating through shady trees.
Hike, walk, or bike from the property to local natural areas, including the historic Stony Valley Railroad Trail, Ellendale Trail Head, Rattling Run Trail, and Stony Mountain Fire Tower.
