  • Its great place to go to get the kids outside. Also can feed the fish for only $.25 ! If you enjoy taking pictures it very scenic. My family visits often.
  • It's a nice park to see the fish pools and pond. It'll be nicer if it have a playground for the children. The restrooms are always closed. They should be open during the park's open hours.
  • This is a the home of the famous mushroom house. Drive by and take a peek and then stop by the fish hatchery and feed the fishes. There's also plenty of trails.
  • Powder Mill's Ski Slope is fantastic! The prices on the snacks are so cheap, the hot chocolate is free, it's such a nice little place. Powder Mill has a very good slope and it's always a blast! I mean, what's not to love about the place? :)
  • Hiking trails, fish hatchery, sledding hills, ponds, and the mushroom house?! What's not to like?! This is a must visit park if you're just passing through and visiting. Even if you're just driving through to get to the mall. The mushroom house alone makes it worth it. Bristol Mountain also used to sponsor skiing lessons on one of the hills with a rope tow when I was a kid, but they might not anymore. I also saw a Pileated woodpecker here when hiking a trail by the fish hatchery, so you might be interested if you are a bird watcher as well. Oh, and yes you can feed the fish at the hatchery. Kids get a kick out of it. Bring some quarters with you.
