this was a nice park. Close to civilization and easy to get to. Nice trail up the mountain, but didn't have time for other parts of the park.

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.
