This is a hidden gem that offers a 2.7-mile loop trail through natural areas with mature walnut, oak, and beech trees. Pass over bridges and through gorges as you follow the trail on the ridges formed long ago by the Mill Creek Watershed. There is also a level paved trail that is handicap accessible and plenty of wildlife to be seen.
