Walk down into the forest and you feel like you are million miles away. Babbling brook, scent filled air, and scampering animals will restore your weary soul.

I stopped here for a jog one evening in the Spring while I was in the area. Beautiful park with very well maintained trails. Very quite and I saw many deer and smaller critters throughout the park.
