Dogwood Professional Reviews and Guides

"The loop trail makes a steep climb to the highest point in the park and then descends into an area with a small stand of virgin timber before passing through an open meadow near the trailhead. The 532-acre historical park has many buildings built during the 1800s.

Burr Smith willed the park’s land to the state in honor of his great-great-grandfather, who bought the land in 1792. The park offers horseback riding, swimming, and picnicking. Special attractions: A beautiful stretch of trail along a ridge crest and tall old-growth hardwoods in a sheltered cove."
