The Newlin Grist Mill offers 8.5 miles of trails that blend natural beauty, environmental diversity, and cultural history. The 160-acre park has something for everyone, whether they are seeking to observe nature, explore the past, exercise, or just relax.
The trails pass through an array of diverse habitats from upland grasslands to river bottom wetlands, each offering its own varieties of plants and animals. In addition to the abundant native species of trees, park founders Elizabeth and Mortimer Newlin planted several specimen trees throughout the park. The habitats support a wide range of wildlife and throughout the year both resident and migratory birds can be found in the park.
Evidence of past industry, agriculture, and transportation are scattered along the trails. Observe how the half-mile long water system transforms the landscape into a working machine that generates power.
