The park features several miles of well-marked and relatively level trails, abundant with wildflowers in spring and wildlife throughout the year. Birdwatching is especially popular on the Black Marsh Trail.
Bikes are welcome throughout much of the park, except in the wildlands area.
Black Marsh Wildlands
Over half of the park (667 acres) has received legislative protection as state wildlands. Bicycles are prohibited in the wildlands. The wildlands (along with the park’s wetland area) provide opportunities to observe local birds and wildlife including muskrats, beavers, foxes, otters, osprey, great blue herons and bald eagles.
