Went there the day before Thanksgiving. It was quite crowded. The staff was very cooperative & attentive to the kids. They made it a big deal for the kids when presenting the JR badge & my little ones felt overwhelmed :)

Wanted something to do on a Saturday of a business stay-amazing nature and views and great workout! Parked in the overflow parking area and Walked/jogged/claimed the northern section. On Sunday found the parking lot for the central section. Beautiful trail as well!

This is a great way to take in the beautiful scenery, see historical landmarks and get a good workout. Bring your 2 or 4 legged friends, walking shoes and water. Explore many trails flat or hilly there is a trail for everyone.

15 minutes or less. If you get off at Rt. 5 it's a pretty quick trip from there. If you need directions, ask me.

That is totally up to you and how interested you are in the details. When we were there it was pouring rain so we did not drive the trail. We did spend a long time at the visitor' center. Very extensive.
