Best Botanical StrollNamed for its 16-acre grove, a National Natural Landmark, bursting with Rhododendron maximum blossoms in mid-July, the 2,723-acre reserve is the state’s only botanical park. Look for wildflowers such as Indian pipe and woodland asters also blooming throughout the park, and listen for ruffed grouse, white-throated sparrows, woodpeckers, and warblers.
