  • Hiking trails are beautiful in any season. Multiple waterfalls. Shoes with traction/spikes recommended in winter. Groomed cross country ski trails in season. Beautiful nature, lovely facilities. Interpretive learning center [as of 2/2021, closed due to COVID-19] has super neat exhibits. Great fun for adults and children.
  • Plan it out ahead what you want to see. Lots of trails. And alternative routes.
