Alum Spring Park in the Burg
A typical trail you can take a stroll on in the park. For those not from the area, or continent for that matter, it is of interest to note that during the American Revolution, Hessian (German) prisoners captured at the Battle of Trenton were held in a camp on this site. As I understand it a large number of German troops who fought in the revolution decided to start new lives in the newly independent America rather than to return home.
