The parks feature trails for all types of adventurers, from paved paths for easy walks to wilderness trails for more strenuous treks. Join a guided outing or explore on your own.

    The Regional Parks are horse friendly, that's for sure. Equestrians are welcome on trails throughout the county. Climb wooded mountains or gallop across sandy shorelines.
