No need to leave this area to hike and see the fall color. This park is spread out over several miles. I parked in the lot off Newman's Lane, about 25 spaces and it was almost full on this beautiful Saturday afternoon. The kiosk was...More

We love to hike the trails and go fishing at this picturesque location. The kids love to look for snakes and salamanders . Many go there to bird watch and the leaves are stunning in the fall!

Great hiking trail through beautiful country with a river, railroad bridges, and fields. Not too strenuous but enough to keep it interesting. Parking is free and plentiful and the park is close to Bridgewater and surrounding towns.

Beware that this is more for mountain bikers than anything. This really isnt a good spot for hikers and especially not for hikers with their pets. Mountain bikers are flying up and down the trails seeking thrills armed only with their little bell that offers...More

This place is a true gem. I went Mountain biking here with a family friend who let me try out their $10,000 mountain bike and it was amazing. I felt like I was skiing powder. But anyway it is so much fun here. Plenty of...More
