Sweetwater Creek State Conservation Park Trails Professional Review and Guide
"This day-use park offers boating and fishing on 215-acre Sparks Reservoir, as well as hiking on trails that meander along Sweetwater Creek and through the surrounding hills. The park opened in 1976 and preserves both the serene beauty of woods and waters and the ghostly ruins of the historic mill operated by the New Manchester Manufacturing Company from 1849 until it was destroyed by Union Cavalry on July 9, 1864. The park features more than 8 miles of color-blazed trails that trace a path to the ruins, along Sweetwater Creek, and into the surrounding hills."
