While the main attractions at Mine Kill State Park relate to water—fishing, boating, and swimming in the park’s Olympic-size pool—8 miles of trails give hikers the opportunity to enjoy the park’s succession forest and breezetossed meadows on foot. The hike described here brings you to one of the park’s best scenic overlooks, from which you can view the Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project, tucked below Brown Mountain to the east.
