Great park with several different trails to hike through. The staff was very helpful in making sure we knew where we were going before starting our trek. While hiking late on a Sunday afternoon, it was pretty quiet, and we only ran in to people one time towards the end of our hike. There were nice views of the river, too. Just make sure to dress appropriately and to check for ticks after leaving, but this goes for lots of woodland areas, especially in the Northeast.
This is a great place for a day hike with family and friends during those warm summer days, as well as when the fall foliage is a popping. Just stay alert and watch for wildlife and bring plenty of water and insect repellent. I advise not to hike alone or without some sort of GPS, you could easily get turned around in there
