The balance of the property is a combination of mesic northern hardwood forest, fields and riparian wetlands providing a multitude of recreation opportunities including fishing, hiking, kite-flying, wildlife viewing, and more. The trail meanders through forest, field and wetland down to beautiful views of both Long and Fern Lakes. It also features a really neat fishing pier on Fern Lake.
