Borderland offers walking, horseback and biking trails. Grab a map at the welcome center and explore off the main trails if you want more terrain and quieter trails. Don't miss the Ames Mansion during your visit. The building and grounds are impressive and well preserved....More

Nice place to bring the dogs for a hike or a walk. Only downfall is the $6 parking and the fact that not everyone adhered to the dog leash policy.
