New ADA Trail at NKHP

An ADA assessable trail now improves access for everyone to experience the park.  The new trail is short but affords people with wheelchairs or strollers to view the ponds near the Miller Bay Road parking lot.  The two man-made drainage ponds from an old homestead and have produced sightings of otter and wood duck in past years. Next time you are out to the park, take a quick walk to appreciate the new trail and the ponds.
