for everyone. There are many opportunities for hiking, with trails
leading to many special points of interest, including a mountaintop
fire tower; an extensive marsh where beavers, deer, and great blue
herons may be seen, and a geologically unique field where large
boulders called glacial erratics were deposited when glacial ice melted
near the end of the Ice Age.

picnic area, a playground, park store, and a group shelter with a ball
