Trail Description:
The History trail is about 1.5 miles long and goes from the North parking lot South to the Grist Mill. There is an elevation gain of about 300 feet through this Oak, Bay and Maple dotted Landscape. Be sure to visit the old cemetery near the beginning. The grist mill has been restored and there is a small museum nearby. With a little luck, they might even grind some flour for you.
