Nearby highlights:

Warren Lake – fishing, swimming and hiking. Fairly easy 4.7+km hike around the lake. Very subtle slopes, many root entanglements throughout the path. Keep an eye out!

Broad Cove Mountain* – a more challenging hike than Warren Lake.

Branch Pond Lookoff* – a second more challenging hike/climb up to the highland plateau for a beautiful view.

Mary Ann Falls – a short drive up and then a short hike down to a man made platform overlooking the waterfall. Great for pictures, you can also have a nice swim in falls.

*I haven’t hiked either of these yet. But will before summer is out and blog again about this beautiful place.
