About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This park is a local favorite and an easy loop. It is pet friendly and features two great playgrounds. We usually start the loop at the starting  point near the bathrooms (open year round) and head south toward the parkway along the lake. The trail is paved or packed dirt and is generally accessible to all. You will cross three bridges, pass two cannons from the early 19th century and lots of neat trees, especially on the west side of the lake. The kids especially like the “waterfall” at the south side of the lake and a little detour under the bridge (of the parkway) is a fun place to see the stream and try our voices for echoes. Paddle boats for rent in summer.

Full time mommy and full time physician assistant, I aspire to raise my kids to love the outdoors and take the time to connect with nature! I became a branch ambassador in the late Fall of 2019 after hiking for over three years with Hike It Baby and my two daughters, now 4 and 6 years old. I feel like our branch has the capability of being very active and amazing and I wanted to be a part of it! Hope to see you on the trails soon!
