  • Great expanse of land that's so close to the city there's literally no excuse not to go. Paths are clearly marked to and from the visitors center and its not too difficult to get around the farm. The ice cream at the end was worth the few hours hike throughout the area.
  • Just a great place to spend the afternoon. The trails are great and varied. I loved the tour of the farm and seeing how they are keeping agriculture alive. Plus... Ice cream.
  • This is a great park to walk around and good for kids too. The trails are easy to walk around, there is some nice ponds and water mixed in with the woods, it is good for some nature spotting. The dairy farm by the parking lot has ice cream which is great to take the kids after the hike.
  • Clear, clean trails. Go riding with friends. A few good cross country jumps as well
  • Very scenic place for a walk, bike, or cross country skiing. Very gentle slopes or flat trails. Variety of fields, woods and ponds. Good ice cream in summer.
