We enjoy this park any time of year. The covered bridge is a huge draw, as is the beautiful pond. Lve to go in the fall and enjoy the color!

I planned a meet up there, we walked the trial, enjoyed looking at the church, and inside the cabin. We enjoyed crossing over the big covered bridge. It was cold so we didn't do a picnic lunch near the lake.

I live on Green Mountain and have visited this park weekly for the last 27 years. Trails are well maintained, picnic area is very nice. Many photographers come here to do outdoor family portraits. The covered bridge is iconic.

Tracy has made some great suggestions. My only word of advice is that there is some major construction going on right by both of these hotels. There is a Hampton Inn in Hampton Cove which is over Hwy 431 mountain. While... More
