A small parking area with a network of beautiful woodland trails, with interpretive signs and trail markers. Part of the land is replanted farmland, part is maturing hardwood with a great mix of Acadian trees and shrubs. There is a native plant garden run by Trout River Environmental Committee. The trails have some steps, bridges, and steep slopes. The Devil’s Punchbowl itself is a unique steep gorge where illicit alcohol was stored during the years of prohibition, although the sign at the site tells a different story.
Trout River Park, located at 1895 Trout River Rd – Rte 239 Millvale is a quite park and trail, connecting to the popular fishing location, Gunns Bridge.
