A wonderful nature setting. This realm offers plenty. There are three different trails that wind you through gardens and wooded areas. The Fernwood trail has informational plaques describing native trees. Stop and check out Echo and Seneca ponds. There's also a suspension bridge which is quite nice. My favorite time is spring when it's not as hot and the gardens are blooming.
What a gorgeous place to photograph a wedding! From the domes covered in vines, to the bridges over water, pathways lined with trees and beautiful landscaping! We would be glad to come back and photograph weddings here any time!
Visitor Center is opened Wed to Saturday 10 am to 5 pm; and on Sundays 12pm to 5pm. The visitor center is CLOSED on MONDAYS and TUESDAYS. This is a very lovely place to unwind. Theres plenty of plants and wildlife. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The restrooms are heated with running water and flushing toilets and were remarkably clean.
A very peaceful nature area just down the road from Summit Mall. Several different types of trails from paved to gravel to dirt through a variety of gardens and woods. Three main trails offer a variety of different loops with changing difficulties. Ample parking as well. Head down the road to the Merchant Tavern afterward for some great food and cocktails.
Beautiful, peaceful, great wildlife and nature. This walk is one of the flatter trails around. There are a lot of things to see and a little kid had chip monks eating out of his hand. Bring some peanuts, sit calmly and see what happens. When we were kids we used to take school field trips here, was cool to see it grow into what it is today.
