This is the coolest park to visit! I went by myself  (which I don’t recommend doing if you’re female) and there were plenty of people in the park, many with dogs- so I felt fairly safe.

Corriganville used to be a Movie Ranch waaaay back in the day. Lots of famous movies and TV shows have been filmed there. In 1949, this property was used as a Western Themed

Amusement Park and was voted one of the 10 Best Attractions in America back in the 50’s. Google the ranch for more information- It’s a kick!

There are 2 marked trails- One for Flora, one for Movie Trivia! Interesting and educational! I used this method for my work out- I walked super fast between signs…stopped and read them and then continued quickly to the next. I took every hill I could find and walked up those as well. I got a terrific workout!

 

Here are some of the Western Town ruins…

Caves, mountain views and all that fun stuff!            

SERIOUSLY….
