Whether young or old, fit or sedentary, you NEED to experience the beautiful nature trails. Stroll leisurely, or get your workout away from crowds. 900 acres. I frequently saw 0-2 others on the trails I used to walk my dogs, for 1-2 hours per day.

We can't wait to go back. There are many trails to walk, bike, or horseback riding and we only walked a few. The petting farm was fun. The goats are so cute and friendly and will eat right out of your hands. They have a...More

My husband and I have been here several times, and we always enjoy it. Since we are over 62, we paid a one-time fee ($10.00) for a parking pass, which is a nice perk! The walking trails go through wooded areas as well as by...More

The trails at Great Brook are great. Nice variety: glacial features, bedrock outcrops, ponds, streams. The cow barn is interesting, especially high-tech milking machine. The rotating scratching brush is a nice touch. But (and this is why this place loses two stars), the cows have...More

This is a beautiful place for a walk from spring thru fall but I especially like it in the fall when the leaves have started to turn. There are wide, smooth, not much elevation heart-healthy paths in the shade to wide smooth paths in the...More

I go here almost every night (that I'm not traveling on business!) - it's an amazing place to walk and unwind. With dogs, with horses, with bikes... Or just on foot, this is a great place to be!

This place is worth the $2 parking........lots of easy trails for kids of all ages to walk or bike, farm animals to feed, and great ice cream. We try to go at least every other week in good weather.

Lovely park with paths through woodlands and a working farm. Forests and streams are beautiful and you really feel like you're miles away from suburbia. There are all kinds of critters; we've seen at various times salamanders, frogs, birds of all kinds, bunnies, raccoons, opossum,...More

Returned after years of not visiting here. The trails are pretty well marked, lush, green and mostly flat. Nice to get out for an afternoon walk and always happy to have a delicious ice cream for motivation at the end! The extreme chocolate is dark,...More
