Flint Woods is a satellite area of the park and has become the park's third nature preserve. Flint Woods is home to species of rare song birds and an old-growth forest. The park's forests are part of the Northeastern coastal forests ecoregion.Fourteen miles of trails run through the park, the longest being the Rocky Run Trail and the Greenway Trail.
