  • Beautiful walk along a stream with many small waterfalls. Can get crazy busy here on weekends when the weather is nice. Bring a change of cloths for the kids because access to the water is easy and safe as it's not very deep or fast. Out house are provided and there are a few pick-nick table to use.
  • Beautiful Springs in a natural environment. Great fall destination. Should receive more funding to allow more oversight of the location to control damage from foot traffic.
  • Nice walk with the family. Pretty short and lots of people on the weekend but really quite nice to walk through the waterfalls.
  • Easy hike, great for beginners. Minimal parking though and this is a popular spot, saw a few people park down the road abit. Beautiful scenery , would come again !
  • Nice small park that usually doesn't have the rush of the other parks. Great place to bring ur pets and kids.
