Matson Hill Park is 475 acres of rugged, heavily forested parkland, which has become the area's number one hiking and biking destination. Offering more than six miles of natural surface trails, this historical property is situated in the "Daniel Boone Region" and is perfect for any outdoor getaway or retreat and open to the public to explore.

Designed with limited outside development, the park reflects the natural surroundings found in the area during the time of Boone's life. An interpretive area focusing on the Boone family heritage is expected to open to the public in the coming years. Design and Engineering of Phase II of Matson Hill Park is currently undeway.
