  • We have been there with the snow and without the snow and each season is like you were discovering it again.

  • I had wanted to stop here for a long time and am so glad I did. We pulled in and noticed there was also a Wildlife sanctuary here that you can enter and see critters. We saw a porcupine and hedgehog as well as tree frogs, a tarantula and a Turtle that thinks fingers are worms and will try to eat them through the glass. It was awesome, but not the reason we went. We went for the trails and to walk around, and we're not disappointed! They have lovely large trees scattered around the area, and a beautiful segment of open path that is scattered with fairy houses resting in the trees. It was so much fun to spot them hiding high and low. This is a great place for children and honestly, people of all ages that enjoy animals, trails, and adventure with a splash of creativity and magic.
  • This places is excellent to enjoy different kinds of activities: we have done canoeing, hiking, snowshoeing, grilling, picnicking, playing bocce, sledding, picking blackberries and we had always had a great time. For hiking there’s plenty of trail to explore, all very good.
