A nice surprise - I parked at the Pond area and took the bike trail from there to the Park and a little beyond. It's only paved for a part of the way and then it's rocky, so for my taste, best on foot or...More

Has suck great history, and wide open spaces to visit. The deer, moose and lots of birds hang out along the river. It is pretty cool to watch the wildlife mixing with the people.
