I have enjoyed this scenic reserve for 20 years or more. I went with my family during the new year in January 2017. Nice place for the grandkids to explore, and meticulously-maintained flora. Amazing house to see, with a botanical library.

Beautifully manicured estate grounds. I love how serene the walk was; no audio tour, no descriptive signs ever twenty feet. Just you and nature. Well worth the price of entry.

The woods, meadows, and gardens are spectacular. The views over the water from the bluff behind the historic mansion are also great. When I went - a Sunday afternoon in October - the paths were not at all crowded, and strolling through the quiet beauty...More

The size and shape of the trails wouldn't lend themselves to riding bikes. Besides it's a lovely and quiet garden.
