    Cromwell Valley Park with Loch Raven Add - on Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "An opportunity for pleasant hiking within 371- acre Cromwell Valley Park, as well as adding a more strenuous Loch Raven extension. Keep your eyes open for abundant wildlife. Cromwell Valley Park (CVP) has a long history; the area was first settled some 300 years ago.

    Nowadays, thanks to conservation efforts by the county and state as well as the generosity of families that owned the farms that now make up CVP, it exists mostly as an educational park, focusing primarily on farming, history, and nature. Programs demonstrating animal husbandry and organic farming provide educational opportunities year-round. This means that the park is often busy, but the trails remain largely uncrowded."

    Cromwell is great for a casual walk in the woods - plenty dog-friendly too! Agreed with another review that said "don't follow directions, just go hike..."

    This is an area with a common starting area and diverse terrain. The area is fairly well marked and includes views of several dams. If you depend on trail markings you could get confused so remember where you came from.

    Don't follow the instructions. Just go hike and you'll love it no matter which direction you go. Very quiet for being so close to the city.
