  • Loved walking the numerous trails. You can discover the remnants of a resort - hard to believe that a large resort was situated so far out. Beautiful views of the mountains. We really enjoyed our.....  more »

  • Love the scenery! Love the staff's demeanor! Love the hummingbird feeders (lots of hummingbirds). Close to a city, but you would never guess it! Great place! Well kept everything here!
  • Beautiful area with a diversity of life and lots of trails. The park staff are super friendly with a lot of cool information. They have backpacks on loan for kids with nature books, binoculars and a magnifying glass. So cool!
  • Beautiful place. Parking costs 5 bucks. Saw 2 young deer. Nice wide path. We went early morning to avoid the heat.
  • Very beautiful and calm route. Mostly flat so easy to hike. I went down the Dripping Springs trail (1.5 mile, so 3 mile hike total). There's some cool old buildings to explore, park benches and an occasional tree for shade. I hiked in late June, and it was hot. Bring water!!!
  • Even though the falls were dry, it was a great and beautiful hike. The landscape was beautiful and I will do it again when I return.
