It is a beautiful park. Maple syrup festival is great. The trilliums that carpet the forest floor in early spring are spectacular. Definitely a must see! The hike is easy to moderate and goes over a few gentle slopes and provides a good view of the forest . Very convenient to do with kids and family. Things are well-kept, too. Overall, a great park for a quick hike, picnic, botanical sightseeing during certain parts of the year.

Another wonderful place for nature viewing and birding and doing some great hikes. One if the few places in the area that has a sugar shack and taps maple syrup. A great place to be in all seasons.

Pretty good MTB singletrack for the area, relatively speaking. Plenty of events here, including the Maple Sugar festival (do not miss the maple sugar spun cotton candy), make it a real gem. Usually free entrance on weekdays, and a gate fee on weekends.
