  • Happy we stopped! Can spend 20min - few hours here appreciating the peace! Be sure to ck out the Big & Little Agassiz.. both admirable!
  • Good hike to do with kids. 1-1/8mi up to Donovan’s Point on the blue trail via Small Agassiz Rock. Only complaint is that it’s super buggy!
  • Easy access and ample parking. The trails to the rocks are brief, but connecting paths offer much more length. I found the signage in some locations a trifle ambiguous and once off the main drag you need to channel your inner pathfinder. Big A came to a rest in a swamp so bring your boots.
  • Short hike for a good reward. Go there every day for my lunch break. Very peaceful
  • Fairly easy hike. Took about an hour to do entire route. Very well marked. Nothing too exciting to see but it's usually quiet here so it is a peaceful spot. Good stroll with a dog or post lunch.
