  • It is a great place to picnic and just have some family time together. It may be hard for elder people to walk down to the river. Be careful!  more »
  • We visited on a very hot day. Wide trails but a bit confusing. The cave was not quite what I expected. Stairs to main path are very, very, very long but have good area to sit part of the way down.  more »

  • I enjoyed the hiking trails because they were not too long and you could cover a lot of the park in under three miles. I did notice that there is a lot of poison ivy though, the Red Oak Trail was the worst. There was tons and we had to turn around due to the trail being so narrow. I ended up getting poison ivy even though I remained on the trail the whole time. Also, the cave was neat but not as big as we expected it to be.
  • Beautiful trails but due to the recent rains and flooding the entire area was thick with mosquitoes. I have never seen so many mosquitoes. They were literally swarming us in clouds. The Deep Woods Off didn't even make them blink. And several areas the steps have been washed out because of the flooding. We will definitely go back, but in cooler weather when it's dried out a bit... ;)
  • Clearly marked, well-maintained hiking trails, nice picnic areas and pretty scenery. We enjoyed our visit and will return.
  • Awesome historical location...Great for walking, hiking or just a meditating day....So beautiful and relaxing nature experience.
  • Wonderful location for hiking. Great trails on feet and for all fitness levels. I love the way the plants and trees are labeled and the boardwalk in the wetlands was awesome! We loved it all.
