Lynn Woods is a magical find. I have been going there since I was an infant and I took my family there for picnics, hiking and even horseback riding.

Easy to find; large parking area, great walking trails; Too bad there aren't more waste barrels available. Picked up a grocery sack of trash myself; Many folks walking dogs there and NOT cleaning up after them!!!!

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.
