This place is a wonderful collection of walks - sylvan, streamside, lakes and marshes. Traills are generally well maintained and well-marked. Wonderful trees and spectacular water-falls.

A beautiful park where you can swim and kayak. It is big and easy to access. It is a great place to walk or ride a bike.,

This is a lovely place to take an easy-paced walk. The trails are mostly flat and shady, and part of the way goes right along the water. No admission fee and free parking.

Just a short walk from the parking lot and worth the walk! Be sure to take your camera with you. Easy access.

Yes, there are many places in the park to read a book. If you want to be near the falls, I would of course bring a folding chair or spread a blanket.

you can do in as little as 10 minutes. the falls are right off the parking lot. if you follow the trails you can walk for as long as you'd like.
