  • We have been there with the snow and without the snow and each season is like you were discovering it again.

  • Great place to bring the kids! The birds, deer and chipmunks on the trail where just feet away!! There is a birds of Prey exhibit that is so awesome! I had no idea how big Bald Eagles are until I was able to see one in real life and up close at this exhibit. This exhibit COMPLETELY relies on donations and volunteers! So stop in check them out and help any way you can.
  • This was always the "quick hike" spot growing up. There are various trails to take with some incredibly beautiful views. No matter what time of year you go, you're in for a tranquil and low-traffic experience. There aren't any "intense" trails, but certainly a good range for working up a sweat or a leisurely walk. If you're looking for a great sledding spot, you've come to the right place. Devil's Bathtub is iconic for sledding or even learning how to ski (use caution though. It's highly popular and typically filled with young kids). I no longer live in the area, but always make sure to pay this park a visit when I'm in town. 12/10 would recommend!
