There are two dams in this immediate vicinity as well as the remains of some old homesteads. You can learn more of the info we have received about the old history of this area on this page.
I have always been most drawn to the other dam as it is off the beaten path and far more hidden, but finally decided to visit this one. Although in a more public area, the dam itself has an isolated feel and was actually very neat to see!
The dam was built in the late 1920’s and predates anything mad-made around it. In an area that has been so heavily developed, it’s soothing to me to see these old remnants of times long ago.
I would not say this is kid or dog-friendly as that is a far enough drop to get pretty injured.
