Beautiful, shady, cool and green are just a few words that recreationists have used to describe the Cienega Group Picnic area. It is fairly flat, accessible, semi-private and accommodates up to fifty people. There are grills, bear proof trash containers and vault toilets provided and no shelter other than the surrounding shade trees. A stream, which draws birds and other wildlife, runs through the area.

Cienega sports an accessible interpretive trail/sidewalk that winds around the picnic site and provides a great learning experience for those who take the time to check it out. There is a patio near the beginning of the interpretive trail that is suitable for a wheelchair picnic. All you need is a folding table for everyone to gather around at mealtime.
