Long Description:
There are several other good views in the park but none in my opinion are a nice as the one you get from looking either up or down stream from the Gerard Hiking Trail's suspension bridge.

While standing on the bridge you may see some of the areas abundant wild life including but not limited to: Fish, raccoons, rabbits, deer, bear and flying critters including blue herons, ducks and eagles.

Also if your timing is right you may even get to see the not so wild life that rides the OC&T railroad excursion train as it tours through the "Valley that changed the world". Be sure not to feed the people on the train as they go by but do wave, everyone likes a friendly hiker :)

If you stick to the hiking trails you should be looking forward to about a 1.6 mile 2 1/2 hour trip depending on the trails you take. You can also take the Bike trail to cut some time off your walk but you will add a nice view across the creek of Drake Well Park.
