Weston Bend Stat park is off the "beaten" path of Weston's Main Street. It has beautiful countryside views and paved trails for long or short hikes.

Lots of people take strollers. The pavement is fine for them. The hills could be challenging if the 'driver' isn't used to hills. As a practical aside--Make sure to use your stroller safety strap to attach to your wrist.
