The Bluff Trail at this park was a very scenic hike.  In addition to geocaches and earthcaches in the park, there was a number of trails.  I’ve indicated the Bluff Trail as being easy, but the initial incline from the upper parking lot was a fairly steep one.  There was also several points of the Bluff Trail that were muddy so be prepared for that.  Although the trail is well marked, there are sections that come very close to the edge of the bluff so be alert.  The remaining trails are very easy.  In addition, even though I have not indicated this as a bike trail, we saw many bikers around the entrance of the park.  It looked like a very popular biking area.

This large recreational area located between Tully and Apulia offers a lot for the outdoor enthusiast.  After reading several other hikers post on this area, there appears to be additional trails from what I have listed above.  I look forward to coming back here to further pursue them.  The two trails that I did do were easy and there is at least one geocache on the Blue Trail.

Twin Cedars is a great “family” oriented hike.  The main loop is 1.3 miles around the pond.  It was short and easy enough for a couple of young kids to do.  We saw a Blue Heron right off the bat and also found a geocache along the Drumlin trail.  Additionally, there are a few smaller trails that shoot off of the Drumlin trail — Blue Heron, Woodchuck and Turtle that total about .5mile and for the most part run along the Drumlin Trail.
