Mount Falcon Park provides not only pleasant hiking country, with rolling meadows and shady forests on small hills, but also a walk back in history. Once owned by visionary John Brisben Walker, the remains of his mansion and the start of a futile dream lie ready for exploration. A former summer cabin has been remodeled into a viewpoint and picnic pavilion. This lollipop hike visits these sites on a tour of the western part of the park. Excellent interpretive displays explain the human and natural history. The park protects wildlife habitat and o?ers recreational trails near the cultural features.
