A great place to cross country ski or walk your dog. Go after dinner with your friends for some exercise.

You can enjoy this place in many ways -- casual walks, dog walks (when the other un,manageable dogs are not running wild!), hiking, biking, even on horseback. There is a mix of open space and woodlands -- your choice. It can be a bit crowded,...More
