It was odd that the leader and the main group took off and left us slower ones behind. When we got to the trail divides, we had no idea which way to go. We had to try to look for tracks, use a compass to determine our direction, etc. We needed to be given a map or directions or at least an explanation of which trails we would be taking, since we were on 4 or 5 segments. It was strenuous and rocky, which we were told ahead of time, and if someone had gotten hurt, there was no way to have gotten help from the leadership, because they left us in the dust.

What a wonderful holiday event for young and old! My daughter, grandsons and I enjoyed all the activities, especially the awesome puzzles in the blacksmith shop and the carriage ride. Such beautiful horses. Took home nice hand made ornaments, ate too many delicious cookies, drank too much cider, shopped in the gift shop, and went home with sugar plums dancing in our heads. Thank you for organizing such a nice event!

This was my first time to attend an event at Greenwood Furnace....and it was a blast. We participated in the 5 mile race, as hikers, and found the trail to be very challenging and fun! Can't wait for the next event!

Informative but was anticipating bigger snakes. Glad to see the variety of snakes that were caught.

Would have liked to hear more of the history of the park. We heard a lot of not sure and this was part of this. Taking into consideration that the nice gentleman had many parks and not a lot of knowledge it was still somewhat informative.
