Forest Heritage Museum
This center stays true to its name by displaying different types of documents and artifacts dealing with the history of forestry in the area. You can view antique tools, peruse the library, or check out some of the wood art on display. There’s activities and exhibits for the history buff, the antiques lover, and the art adorer.
There are a variety of different hiking trails ranging from one to three miles in length. Most are fairly easy and would be suitable for a beginner, but a couple of routes have some climbing involved, so be sure to do your research first. The longest trail, the David Boren Hiking Trail, has four major trailheads with options to do a three-mile loop from various locations. You can hop on this trail from almost anywhere in the park. No matter what trail your on, the trees have blue and white markers to keep you on the right path.
