Audubon Acres Reviews & Ratings
Ran by a boy scout troop and being an eagle scout myself I was happy to go through it. Fun trail to walk plenty of spooking. Probably more for kids but it's ran by a scout troop so that's expected. Overall Good haunted Trail!
archeology, history, bird eggs, huge trees, & creek. it's lovely. I'm so glad that this place was preserved against development.
Great place to just unwind and relax . Everything is kept up and looks beautiful.
Love hiking here! It's very adventurous and beautiful!
