The trails at Great Brook are great. Nice variety: glacial features, bedrock outcrops, ponds, streams. The cow barn is interesting, especially high-tech milking machine. The rotating scratching brush is a nice touch. But (and this is why this place loses two stars), the cows have...More

I go here almost every night (that I'm not traveling on business!) - it's an amazing place to walk and unwind. With dogs, with horses, with bikes... Or just on foot, this is a great place to be!

This place is worth the $2 parking........lots of easy trails for kids of all ages to walk or bike, farm animals to feed, and great ice cream. We try to go at least every other week in good weather.

Lovely park with paths through woodlands and a working farm. Forests and streams are beautiful and you really feel like you're miles away from suburbia. There are all kinds of critters; we've seen at various times salamanders, frogs, birds of all kinds, bunnies, raccoons, opossum,...More

Our family loves the miles of trails and abundant animal life. During the warm weather, stop by for a delicious ice cream. In the winter, cross country skiing and hiking will help you beat the blahs .

Several miles of fairly easy, well-marked trails. Print a trail map from their website before you go. Pine Loop Trail is a good first trail Nice pond. Great ice cream stand near the parking area.
