Nine miles of trails with many varied habitats offer a place to stretch muscles left stiff from hours of canoeing. The Fire Road and a section of Lassiter Trail are open to bicyclists. Merchants Millpond is heavily infested with ticks during warm weather months; be cautious while hiking. Insect repellent may help prevent a tick bite and the possibility of disease. Tuck trousers into long socks and tuck a long-sleeved shirt into pants. Check often for ticks. Wear light colors so that ticks may be easily spotted and removed. For other tips, contact park staff.
