what used to be a gravel pit is now transformed into a gorgeous marine park. Lots of trails and vistas. Tables at the top for lunch time and to watch wildlife. Or walk to the bottom and tour the beach. Look for animal prints: otters, coyotes, racoons and birds all leave their prints. If you come upon wildlife be sure to give animals lots of room for your and their safety.

What can I say?! If you get caught in a deluge while hiking in Island Center Forest (it could happen) then you might want to take your muddy duds to Suds Laundromat. While your laundry is washing , you can hang out at Rock Island Pub And Pizza, just a couple doors south.
