  • For the most part, the lower trails are accessible right now. There is a lot to see. The upper trail into the Sugar bush is Bear territory, and should be used with caution. There are two active bear cubs, and need to be given as much space to play as possible. In other places around the valley, bears bump into human territory once in a while. Here, it's their domain. After I do some more visiting, I will update my review
  • Beautiful area with several hiking trails and expansive views. Also a picnic area near the house. I've not been able to enter the home yet. Parking behind the barn.
