Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"Hike over a variety of paved, gravel, and natural trails that run over 424 acres of grassy fields, open meadows, forest, and wetlands that northern cardinals and cottontail rabbits call home. More than 7 miles of trails fill the reservation named after the deep gorge that splits it. Take the 141-step staircase down for a look at Stoney Brook Falls in the middle of the gorge."
