Stop in the small wildlife museum at entry. Many reasonable distance trails of great beauty with rock out croppings. Any season provides beautiful vistas . Across the road climb the hill or snow show in winter.

It was a beautiful day and quite a scenic hike. There were numbers along the way that were to teach you about unique things in the woods, but we couldn't find any pamphlet that told us about the numbers. We walked to the Ashley house...More
