    The discription of this park fails to mention that the Bartram Trail runs just outside the entrance. Hikers are probably familiar with this trail, but the section from the dam to Wildwood Park (15 miles) has been made into a very enjoyable (easy) mountain bike trail with a couple of stops for swimming.
