"You don’t have to be a big fan of the Colonial era to enjoy Caleb Smith State Park Preserve— but it doesn’t hurt. Wander beyond its historic house and first-rate nature center, though, and you’ll be on your own—on a really fun hike, that is, through successional fields, pine barrens, swampy hollows freckled with wildflowers and skunk cabbage, with birds all around. Caleb Smith is a tranquil oasis in the heart of suburbia, with trails suitable for even the littlest Bigfoot in your tribe." Read more

Nice trial. Has cross country skiing option and snow shoeing option in the winter when there is snow on the ground. There was a decent amount of foot traffic on the hike, park closes at 4pm. There seems to be a decent amount of wild life from the tracks we saw, but we didn't see many animals.
