Minisink Park unknown oasis

The weather has been wonderful, the 4th of July is almost upon us. Need a break from visiting relatives, barbecues, children? Take a walk in Minisink Park. Behind the soccer fields on River Road is a gavel trail, easily accessible by stroller, that leads along the forested shores of Brodhead Creek and Cherry Creek. Except for the muted sound of traffic on nearby I-80 you will think you have discovered some primordial hidden delta with flowing water and dense vegetaton -- all leading to the islands that mark outflow into the Delaware River. A half-hour or an hour here can clear the soul.
