Description

This park is great for running and seeing some of the wildlife, but the biggest challenge is the climb up the steps to the top of Saul's Mound which is 72 ft. almost straight up. The boardwalk is closed from Dec. 1 to Feb 1, but you can enjoy the quietness, the sound of nature, and having the park to yourself in the off season.

This is a nice, well-maintained trail. There is also a nice optional climb up on the highest mound in the park. The beginning and end of this trail is paved—about 40% of the trail. The rest is on a wooded trail that is very moderate in terms of incline. Wooden stairs and bridges have been built to make some inclines and streams easier. The boardwalk is an alternate route/side excursion that starts where the paved trail splits to the wooded portion of the nature trail.

Flora & Fauna

Park features beautiful wildflowers and deer.
