The 1.5-mile George W. Childs Park Trail follows Dingmans Creek and winds through a lush ravine, over rushing waterfalls, and past several historic structures. Along the way, guests will find the remnants of an old woolen mill that ran from 1823 to 1832, a rarity outside of big cities. Hikers can admire the stone foundations of the mill for a unique glimpse into the area’s history.
The trail is good for all skill levels.
