  • The trail down to the grotto does not loop. The map at the trail head is deceptive. It goes to the top of the grotto. Beautiful hike. Great adventure. Hold hands of little ones closely. (Our youngest ...  more »

  • I was hiking Geocaching 2 mornings it was hot and the park doesn't open till 7:00. There are some great rocky trails along a ledge overlooking the river. These trails go to caves tafonis in the rocks. Only wildlife I saw at the water falls was s lizard. There was no water running these days. Great park well marked trails for quick 2 mile hikes with lots of terrain change
  • Really a fun hike that is close to those downtown or out in the theater area. Keep in mind the walk back up can be strenuous if you go check out the cave and falls. The falls only occurs after a good rain.
  • Lots of fun! Color coded arrows were confusing at times. Was disappointed that there was not a waterfall as pictures showed - when we got to the point of the waterfall, there was a sign which read "waterfall only when there is a downpour". I imagine it would be very muddy and slippery on the trails to get to the waterfall if there was a downpour! All in all, the trails were fun!
  • Beautiful hiking area. From the parking lot there are multiple trails that vary in difficulty. We went with two 5 year olds and ended up hiking about 1.67 miles. In that distance, we were able to see caves, the lake, a waterfall and overhang, grotto, and homestead. Truly a lot to see and a fun way to spend the morning.
  • Great place!! Love it and would recommend it!!!
