It's beautiful here and the fall and there are some great walking/running trails in the area!
It was extremely fun and it was very easy to learn the history on display there. The Martin's Station fort was very well made and had very nice workers. The visitor center was very nice and clean. Its annual reenactments are very fun and helpful with learning.
Beautiful views! Nice picnic areas and bike trails. Martin station is a wonderful place to see, especially when the rein-actors are there!
Beautiful park and very well maintained. They always seem to have some sort of activity going on, especially for the little ones.
Informative. Nice little bike trail to Cumberland.
