This 933-acre park is divided by grey stone walls built of local stone in the late 1800's. At that time the property was a dairy farm owned by the du Pont family. This unique area became a state park in 1965, one of the first parks in the nation to be purchased with Land and Water Conservation Funds. The park maintains 14 miles of trails for fitness, wildlife observation, and photography.

  • Very nice State Park. Wonderful views, calming nature spot to relax, bird watching or if you chose to exeecise and biking.
  • Great place to cool down during the summer and the mountain bike trails are nice
  • A beautiful park set in the valley. So relaxing
