Miller River


The shores of the river are somewhat rocky and unless there’s been lots of rain, you can usually walk along these rocky shores to get a closeup view of the clear water and its inhabitants.


During the summer the grass and cattails that line the meadow portion of the trail are at least 4 feet high. It’s a great short trail for any age.
