  • Great view , steep trails. You need hiking shoes that have good grips and walking stick. The trails that begin here are too dangerous for little children. They can however have a nice picnic at the over look or field but watch them closely so they don't wander near the cliff's edge.
  • Nice area, only rock formation of its kind E° of the Rockies.Interesting local history,good Louisiana eats in nearby Bogota.
  • That whole area is magic. I don't like the parking area at this park as well as others nearby that are much safer to get in and out of. You will get a nice cardiovascular work out on this hill. If you want to climb rocks, go across the street. If you don't want to get sweaty but still see the glorious Susquehanna, go to the park up the hill farther.
  • Great place to hike. Spectacular views by the river. Some steep climbing for those who want a challenge. Paved and dirt paths.
  • Love it. A fairly level macadam trail for both walkers and bikers. It goes behind chiques rock, and from Marietta into Columbia. Be forewarned! One time my husband and I got a ticket on my car for being in park after dark. We parked at Marietta and walked one way to friends house in Columbia and he drove us back to car. It hadn't been dark but about a half hour. It was cheaper to pay $20 ticket than argue with hard-headed patrol desk.
