The woods were a pleasant walk but all the structures were locked up. A visit during staffed hours is the best time to go.

The Bailly Homestead is a nice tourist free area where you can view the homestead and other areas without a crowd. The trail walk was good for easy and moderate loving hikers. The woods were beautiful and good for keeping cool on a hot day.
