“We got a new set of fishing poles!” said Naturalist Karie Wheaton. “Also, campers will be fishing and hiking at Big Creek Park this year. They were at Beartown Lakes Reservation last year and didn’t do the hiking portion. I think it will be a popular addition.”
Plus, all biking this year will begin at Headwaters Park, allowing campers to explore the newly paved section of The Maple Highlands Trail that stretches to Middlefield.
