  • It is a very nice, easy walk in the woods. There are quite a few roots when not on the elevated path. Not sure a stroller or anything pushed on wheels would be fun. But walking is just fine.  more »
  • Really like this place. The food and staff is great. Historical house close to downtown and river. More than enough food for one.  more »
  • The boardwalk is really nice with placards posted along the way to help you understand what you're seeing. The downside is that people are allowed to walk their dogs on the boardwalk and they do not pick up the mess so watch your step. One person even had their dog on the walk without a leash which was barking at us although it didn't seem likely to bite. The walk is too narrow to allow pets so hopefully you will not encounter this. Aside from dog encounters it's a great place.
  • This is a very nice place! It is not very large, actually rather small. But it is very neat and orderly and can be seen in 30 minutes to an hour. Once outside, it will take longer because there are a lot of walk paths. In the summer the mosquitoes are sure to find you, so be sure to bring some kind of repellent. They have just added to the museum by acquiring a small house up the road which I have not seen yet. For those who have been in the area a while, be aware that there is an admission fee now.
