  • Awesome fishing all along the stretch between Dorlan Mills Rd and Downlin Forge Road. Please note it is a delayed harvest area, and you may only use artificial lures or flies. Also great...  more »
  • I love this area of Penna and walking biking hiking in this park, lovely views of the water, sometimes a great blue heron or hawk makes an appearance......early morning or just at sunset is great...  more »
  • Very peaceful, quiet and relaxing place to visit on any afternoon or weekend. Beautifully maintained and people who come here are respectful and keep the trails clean. You can bike and scoot your heart out, the paved trail doesn't seem to end. In portions of the trail, you'll be walking or biking by the creek, which adds to the serene feeling of the area. You're also very close to the amazing Marsh Creek Lake, which has boating and small beach for the kids, as well as a public pool.
  • What an amazing place with amazing staff members.
