  • Easy to find and well marked! A group of us took advanced of the warm winter and took off in an hour long hike! A fantastic way to spend a warm January Saturday. Try it out!  more »
  • Lots of scenic trails, but not great for exercise walking on a hot and humid day. Very little shade available. A real unspoiled oasis and I hope it always remains that. Ice cream stand that also sells...  more »
  • To stretch the legs, the fur tree lined walking trails at Green Brook were perfect. Short and long trails are on offer in the beautiful woods that are on the farm. Recommend you try the ice cream from...  more »

  • Great place for a walk or hike. Actually great place for almost anything. Some of the trails are equine friendly and most you can bike on. They also have a building where you can buy ice cream. The ice cream is actually made from the dairy produced by the cows on the farm. The whole facility is run by the state and as a state facility it is very well run. Oh also for those that have little ones they have a small type petting zoo area.
  • This was our first time going on the farm tour. I have a special needs son, so tours are always something that I'm cautious about. The tour was great, quick, lots to see. Ice cream is great. Kids played at the pond forever. Did two geocashes.
  • I love it here. They have very easy walking trails and well behaved dogs are allowed off leash. Also a farm and ice cream across the street.
  • Good place if you want to show your kids the farm animals like sheep, goat, llamas, hens, pigs. They do have a ice cream shop as well and if you are into hiking they do have walking trails too.
  • Nice trails, dog friendly, be sure to pay the fee.
