Took my daughter there to see the fairy houses. Disappointed there were only about 4 left. It was a nice hike. Loved the swamp and trees. The homestead house was beautiful. Will go back to go through the museum and Nature center.

Stopped here for a walk with friends. Lovely walk through the trees, various routes to follow. Also a special needs route done I think by the scouts. Saw frogs, birds, chipmunks, friends also said that they had seen deer previously. At the moment there are...More

Beautiful, easy hiking trails. The fairy trail is amazing and perfect for kids. There is also a playground, fitness course, garden, and house to explore. Definitely worth a stop, especially for the kids!

As others have said, the park and trail are great. If you can get a tour of the house and barn, jump at it. It is in beautiful preserved condition. All original furniture from six generations of Tinkers that lived there. The volunteer docents do...More
