We hiked the Prosper trail from the west end of the park, to South Peak and back. Four mile trek including the Pogue which was pretty easy for two 50-something office workers. Trails are well marked and maintained.

Another great history lesson on the hows and whys this country is great. Great visionaries saving what was first destroyed. Lovely grounds and easy walking to step into the past and learn how this area was restored and flourishes.
