If you're traveling with youngsters, keep an eye out at the 3/4 -1-mile mark. The Dunafon Castle is a real treat, especially for kids (of all ages!) with a vivid imagination. Originally constructed as a private residence in 1941, the castle has captivated visitors for decades. A drawbridge crossing the creek, the moat-like appearance of Bear Creek, and the authenticity all give visitors a feeling of having stepped back in time. Spending a few moments to admire the castle is well worth your time!
