I happened to stumble across this beautiful park one afternoon. It's a terrific spot for lunch and quick hike to the Cascades. There are numerous trails you can take depending on the length of hike you wish. I took one that followed the river all the way to the Cascades and back which took about an hour (red and yellow trails). Check the map at the entrance to the Conservation Area to see which trail suits you.

The Cascades are a great spot for a quick dip in the river or for an evening campfire. It's an isolated bit of paradise right in the city!

Address: End of Balsam St.
Directions: From Hwy 11/17, turn north onto Balsam St. and follow until the end where you'll find the conservation area.
