“Ridley Creek State Park is a little further from the cottage (about 20 minutes), but it has a great range of multi-use trails (bikes are okay), and single track dirt hiking trails. Over 2,600 acres, so pick out a the route of your choice and hike to your heart's content. Check out the cool old mansion in the middle, too!”
