Nice hike, river view and historic markers. We took our 4 year old grandson and had fun teaching him how to identify the different types of trees and leaves, moss mushrooms. Picnic tables and small grills available and a playground. Only complaint would be about the hikers that let their dogs off leash.

Very nice. Just exactly what our family of four needs for an afternoon of exercise.

This park provides a nice combination of tall woodlands, farmland views and riverside vistas. The River Run and Bridal Loop trails will give you a full sweep of the park, but there are multiple short trails running east-and-west between them if you want to cut the hike short. There are a couple of small climbs but it’s mostly flat trekking. A nice afternoon getaway.

Nice walk in the woods, well maintained. However, there were a lot of different trails off of the main trail which I wasn’t sure of where they ended up. I’ll have to try them next time.

Easy trail for toddlers and beautiful views. Spent a couple hours exploring here and definitely could have spent longer.

Beautiful pine woods that fall away to hemlock groves along the edge of the river. For a short trail it has a good number of small bridges and brooks to keep the hike interesting. Perfect afternoon hike.

Beautiful hike! There is not a lot of elevation gain so it's great for trail running. The river run trail goes right along the water and is really nice. I'm from Oregon and visiting Maine, this trail definitely reminded me of home!

Really awesome trails here. Take River Run trail for an easy walk bordering the water with great views. Or venture to the historic house and check out the beautiful garden. Great for all skill-levels and is dog friendly, with many spots to stop and have lunch along your walk.

The River Run trail was so beautiful. not a strenuous hike at all but the scenery was incredible. I went in March on a very warm day. No snow around and had 2 dogs with me. There was only one other car in the parking area so I let the pups ruin leash less although it does say they should be leashed.

I really enjoy these trails. very easy walking, beautiful views of the river.

Nice trail, but a bummer that our dog couldn't run free. We stopped on a lark.

Very easy, but rewards are good. Views of the river and fairly hilly woods with many stream crossings.

Fun interconnected trail sections. Great for kids!
