This moderate hike takes you on a tour of the park’s man-made and natural resources. You start at the Hunting Hill Mansion and make your way, sometimes uphill, to the park’s namesake, Ridley Creek, which is stocked with trout. From the creek you get on the paved multiuse trail and hike to visit a small eighteenth-century village that grew up around a mill on Ridley Creek. The dam is still there, and after your visit it’s uphill to a paved park road that takes you back to where you started.
