Collier Cove Map

The park consists of over 29 acres of hillside woodland with nearly 2 miles of well defined, steep and strenuous hiking trails. There are several areas with ample clearing, which provides beautiful views of the eastern Butler mountain Range.

Activities in the park include hiking, picnicking, and nature loving. Mountain biking is not allowed in the park as the trails have sharp turns and lack the width and visibility to accommodate hiking and biking without running the risk of user conflicts and accidents.
