Visit the old grist mill as you stroll through the Decew Falls Conservation area. A good place for a walk on a sunny day with gorgeous views. Also a spot for a picnic or go fishing nearby.

I went with my nephew and his girlfriend last summer and it was very pretty and relaxing. You can enter the mill and there was a fellow there explaining how it worked. Nice pics. Don’t miss the trails behind the mill for a lovely walk
