Interesting landscape gives a casual day hiker so much to see! Bring a picnic, bring your camera, make great memories as you hike up and down the trails. Easy access - many other attractions nearby.

This is a beautiful state park. Running water, ponds, picnic tables and lots of trails to walk! Cool on a hot summer day by the brooks. Great place for a picnic day. As you would expect, ticks are abundant! Take care.

It was a nice trip during the fall season. Beautiful fall colors near the water fall as well as the wooden bridge. Kids had a great time too.
