Was the first visit. Lovely historic mill and more modern period buildings, excellent trail system through different habitats. Because it was off-season, it was not possible to enter any of the buildings. There is a reasonable $6 per vehicle all-day fee to park. Will return.

A great place to go hiking, nice trails through the woods. Nice wild animal life. It is also a good place to see historical buildings. Great place to spend one days outdoors.

My family of five children, my wife, and my sister and brother-in-law visited for a much too short walk. When we return to the area in the future, we will make sure that we pack a lunch and spend an entire day exploring the trails,...More

We visited the Mill, now a museum, with admission by donation. It was restored by R Tait McKenzie as a summer home in the 1930s. The main floor offers a glimpse of the cottage life. The upper level features beautiful works of art including impressive...More
