  • This is a beautiful park with good trails and boardwalks. The ice box is a must stop when in season. Decent facilities and easy to access. 
  • We had a wonderful day walking the pathways and exploring everything around us. Plenty of areas to stop & rest as needed, but all in all a great park to explore! 
  • to the treadmill and elliptical at the hotel, while in the area for business. Good variety of terrain and scenery.

  • Just a wonderful place to walk around. Forest, caves, walking trails, sinkholes. Perfect place to spend a fall day
  • Lots of trails! Known for the natural Rockbridge formation and devils icebox / Conners cave. Do some exploring and you'll find several remnants of old dwellings, smaller caves inaccessible to the public and several miles of interconnecting trails that sometimes have good elevated climbs.
  • Great place for a walk. Nature lovers galore. Was super quiet during my visit.
  • Very pretty. Short hike, great for families. The cave would be fun but we didn't come prepared and it would be hard with kids
  • Beautiful park, wooden path lots of stairs, also dirt/rocky path leads to several scenic overlook spots. Neither path is easy if you have physical linitatuons. There is a flat wooden pathway leading to scenic natural rock bridge, however, may still be a challenge navigating it if in a wheelchair.
