  • Cute out of the way spot to stop for a small picnic. Many AT through-hikers stop for a rest in the shaded pavilion. Moderately to not very interesting buildings and ruins abound. A good spot to park and walk a mile or two on the AT.
  • Some interesting landmarks here. Right on top of the ridge. Some nearby trails you can hike (they are OK). Just some signage and history. Not much to engage with otherwise. The arch/wall is the best part.
  • Great air. No bad smells. Lots of sexy raccoons.
  • Nice place for hiking on the AT
  • With a picnic area and a few paths this park is decent enough for a small family outing but didn't offer enough in terms of interest to keep me coming back. It's fun to talk to the Appalachian Trail hikers coming off for a rest but other than that this park doesn't pack a whole lot of anything except a few historical plaques.
