  • Awesome natural features! The Devil's Icebox boardwalk trail is a must, so long as stairs are not an issue for you. Going in a loop, it takes you to all the best geologic features of the park, including the namesake Rock Bridge formation, and a platform that overlooks a large slot cave opening with an underground stream. On the platform there are lots of informative signs regarding the local cave system, with a detailed map. From there, you have the option to descend the stairs into Connor's Cave, which you can see from the platform. The temperature drop was amazingly refreshing. Once at the bottom, with proper equipment, visitors are allowed to wade approximately 150' downstream through Connor's Cave if they want.
  • It is a great spot to get out into nature. Go hiking on a boardwalk or on a dirt trail. See the devils ice box and explore the cave while you are there. Pro tip: wear shoes you can get wet and bring a flashlight. This park is huge and has a little bit of something for everyone.
  • Nice trails. Some will be wet. Have a flashlight and gear for the cave.
  • Wood walkways take you to some interesting geological features. A nice stroll with some options for hiking as well.
  • The rock bridge was amazing and you could go in the cave part of the park and look around
