What should I bring?

The atmosphere at Summers Mill is informal and relaxed. Bring comfortable, season-appropriate clothing. If you plan on enjoying the walking trails, plan on bringing sturdy closed-toed shoes, and if you plan on taking a dip in the creek, bring swimwear and a beach towel. If you have room in the truck, feel free to bring your bike… there are lots of places to be explored here.
