    478 acres of rolling hills, ponds, and graves. Come picnic with your ouija board, or take a stroll while reciting incantations to resurrect the lost souls of revolutionary war soldiers. Read more

    It's beautiful. Great place to roam around, but you can't jog...apparently. I guess that makes sense

    You can cover a lot more area if you drive in and cruise around. Park somewhere in the center and venture out on foot.
