Parley's Historic Nature Park Trail Loop Reviews

People are supposed to clean up after their dogs but the entrance and first quarter mile really stinks of dog poop from irresponsible owners. There are mostly off leash dog trails. Protected areas that are restricted but dogs running around in them despite the signs. Multiple trails Dead end creek Overall pleasant even without a dog
