Hike Summary: Its a great spot for a quick hike and history lesson. There are a number of trails throughout the park, I did the red trail on an out and back hike with my dog. Its a nice trail and is an easy walk, suitable for young kids. Great place in the winter you can sleigh ride on the big hill too. There is a large population of deer in the park, historic buildings, and a visitors center.
