“Kid Friendly hike”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

I like going here with small children. The paths are well taken care of, and are easy terain for walking. Some hills/steep spots, but even young children can walk it easily. I grew up comming here on Sunday afternnoons for family walks. It is a short walk, but is right along the Salmon Falls River and has some nice views.

“Great idea to break up day!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

This park is great to try with a family...(no stroller though too many roots) once you get to the Jewitt house its beautiful place to walk around and photograph with kids. I would def recommend it if you are trying to find something to do for a few hours.

“just a park”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Not especially good, nor bad. Just a quiet place to come and walk, talk, sit, and picnic.Nice dense trees.

“Varied terrain, great river views”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

Just a short drive from the beaches of York, Vaughan Woods is a small but interesting oasis for a brisk hike around a looped trail system. There's enough elevation change to test your cardio and you can extend your walk to the gardens of the nearby Hamilton House. The Salmon Falls river is a great place to observe Blue Herons and an occasional Bald Eagle.
