  • Gorgeous state park that had many different trails and areas for running and jogging. The main path brings you to the lake. If you stay around the outskirts of the lake it will be about 1.25 miles. Wish this place was closer for me. Love it.
  • Really nice, easy quiet walks with pretty scenery. Great at any time of day, but it really shines around dusk. Hundreds of dragonflies, butterflies and fireflies, deer and a great view of the sunset. Perfect if that's what you're looking for.
  • Perfect on a nice day. With an endless variation of trails, you can easily pass friendly people, excited dogs, people on horseback, Blue Hill's farm and beautiful scenery... If you go, please maintain it's pristine appearance and cleanliness.
  • This place is huge so we didn't get to see it all but enjoyed walking a trail while there which was our purpose for going there. We have to go back to see more of it. I would recommend it.
  • My favorite local state park. Lots of hiking trails of every length and skill level. Well maintained parking and facilities. Also a great place for a long trail run.
