This city slicker forgot her bug spray and was covered with mosquitoes almost immediately. I turned around after 5 minutes and drove to Hudson to buy some Off. I returned fully shielded from those suckers and enjoyed a quick hike from Gate 1 to the pond via the dirt road and returned via Pond Trail. Stopped at the latrine which was clean and stocked with TP and hand sanitizer. A nice variety of well-marked paved, gravel, and rugged trails. It was a weekday morning and I didn’t see another person. Peaceful and easy to get around.

Great place to go for a hike. Always something cool to see. Don't forget your bug spray!

Love this place. There's always wildlife of some sort. The trails are easy. I used to babysit and the kids loved coming here.

Flat and very quiet. I watched a beaver swimming around for quite awhile along the river. Will be great to snowshoe in winter.

Really nice area, views of the river and some beautiful little spots. Not a strenuous journey by any means. Trails are pretty well marked and maintained. Definitely a nice little place to check out and walk around. It's entirely maintained through volunteers and contributions, a great place to support. I was just saying to myself the other day that I never see Hirundo mentioned anywhere for walking, birding, wildlife viewing, I think maybe even fishing. There is a small store where they sell bird feeders and other things of that nature.
