Park map

Description:  You will begin this sloping, woodland path at the trailhead to the right of the Meeting House. This easy-to-follow, dirt trail will guide you through a mixed oak, cedar, and pine forest in an undeveloped area of the park. In the quiet of this area you may hear the songs of many birds, or encounter deer, rabbits, snakes and other wildlife. Please follow the trail to the right when it splits behind the Meeting House.

During your hike you will cross a road twice.  The second time you will need to go left for approximately 150 feet to reconnect to the trail.

Description: From the left of the fishing dock, begin this easy-to-follow, occasionally steep, loop trail that provides fishing access and scenic views of the 18-acre park lake. You will cross a grassy causeway over the dam, and wind along a rooted, dirt path through a mixed pine and hardwood forest. Watch your step on the slopes and wet areas, especially after a recent rain. You may see waterfowl, squirrels, snakes and other wildlife.

Tips and information:  Remember to wear insect repellent in warm weather. Pets must be kept on leashes. Restrooms, water and picnic shelters are available near the museum and camping areas.
