  • It's a bit more crowded these days than it was ten years ago, but this small, hidden park is a great destination for hiking or hanging out next to the bubbling creek.  more »

  • One of my favorite places to hike, expect two till three days to see everything. There are family areas, but if your an avoid hiker, the trails are intermediate. The views are great, it's easy to get to. Oh don't forget a camera.
  • Beautiful place to visit and explore but had a hard time finding the public camping sites or someone to ask where they might have been.
  • Cool little park has a forgotten cemetary way up in the woods on one of the trails .There is a waterfall but haven't seen much water on it last two times I was there I'd recommend good walking shoes for the trails .
  • Great state park for getting away for some peace and quiet. Camping , lots of hiking trails some with some beautiful views.
  • Great hiking trails.my son and I hiked all the trails this year.
