Mount Wanda Hiking and Exploring
Just looking for a nice hike or saunter along a beautiful nature trail?
What do I need to know?
Mt. Wanda is not really a mountain, but a set of hills. While it is generally not a streneous hike, there is a lengthy incline at the beginning of the trail. There are a few path options as you get to the upper area, which you can see on the entrance kiosk sign. A nice hike can last around 1-2.5 hours and make you feel like you've had a good workout. However, many folks enjoy a nice, relaxed saunter, if that is your speed.
