Great little spot on Old Forge Road that will give you a nice workout walking the hilly terrain. Saw lots of evidence of turkey, deer and coyote. Trails easy to follow with lots of towering pine to keep you out of the sun. If you are local, your ride and walk will take you a little over an hour... Quick,... More

I am local to this area so I have enjoyed this park since I was a little girl. I highly suggest families with young children to come here to explore as Smithfield's version of "Pride Rock" from the Lion King sits here. There is slow moving streams that are great to put your feet in and the trails are clearly... More

I found this by accident a few years ago. It is a small state park with a lovely stream (seasonally more like a river). A bridge over the stream leads to 2 short hiking trails. Usually the park is empty, or a hiker or two present. Have never seen more than that there. Very tranquil and scenic.

I have been going to Mowry Conservation Area for several years to hike in the woods and walk the dog. Beautiful and peaceful area.

A tiny hidden gem in Smithfield. Stream. Old mill ruins, bridge and hiking trails. Did a Girl Scout crossover on the bridge. Great place for walking the dog, hiking or playing in the stream.

Mowry is small but all ages will enjoy the trails on this wooded conservation land. Street parking available across from the reserve. Review the trail map and head for the little footbridge to start your hike. The entrance is especially nice with the natural “water feature” and pond kids will love. There are two main trails. The Red trail is... More
