Historic Cochrane Ranche
Whether you’re after exercise, photos of wildlife, a history lesson, or just some fresh air, head to Cochrane Ranche Historic Site. This 136 acre park is beautiful year-round, but especially breathtaking in the fall with changing leaves.
But you can find more than nature in the Ranche. Upon arriving, take notice of the quaint museum located in a historic 110-year-old building. Until the end of September, enjoy the local Farmer’s Market on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Explore the walking and biking paths through the trees.
