Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The mountain-bike trails here are built to IMBA standards and offer a good mix of challenges for different skill levels. Full-day bike rentals are available for $20 per day, or you can rent by the hour.
  • The park's Brugh Tavern, open to the public for lunch and mid-afternoon snacks, serves up some hearty fare. Add a living-history touch to your meal by signing up for the "Tales at the Tavern" program, when historically attired interpreters regale diners with tableside stories about 19th-century eating habits, medicine, musical entertainment, and more.
