  • This is a great place to go hiking with trails for all skill levels. There are a bunch of big rocks everywhere left behind by glaciers which gives the park a different feel from others in the area. Cleland Rock has a pretty nice scenic view. You can hunt here as well. The old Mill is a sight worth seeing.
  • This is where the glaciers ground to a halt. Huge boulder tumble on the steep slopes of this gorge. Activities include trails, skilled white water and rock climbing. The North Country Trail system runs through part of the park. A very special place to practice the leave no trave ethic.
  • This is one of our favorite places to go on weekends. Scenic park with trails and beautiful drives. We go to the Heritage Festival every year, and though it's small we always find some great fall decor. We did our engagement and maternity photos here, it is a great setting for that or simply landscape photography.
  • Amazing trails and waterfalls along Slippery Rock Creek. Always a beautiful place during any time of the year. I would highly recommend going off the beaten path and exploring the rocks and trails in the woods.
  • Great park. Has an old mill, covered bridge, and large rocks with plenty of walking opportunities. A lot of fun with the dog. .
