  • We spent 4 days here in May, camping, hiking, and touring around. The beautiful trails through the Forest are well defined, and generally not too difficult--some easy. The trees were so tall, and some...  more »
  • Have wanted to go here for years. It is a nice 4 mile or so hike Nothing too hard. Well marked trails. The trees are unbelievable . The sheer size and beauty are stunning 
  • Based on the photos I saw of this place, I had high hopes for a very relaxing, picturesque hike with expansive views of the forest, etc. The main trail is a 2-mile figure 8, with the top 1/4 of it the...  more »

  • Great park with amazing trees! The spirit of Kilmer is evident in his love of trees. This oasis in the North Carolina Mountains is filled with the beauty of a North American Rain forest and massive Tulip Poplars. The most impressive note about his park is that you can find both the macro and micro scale beauty present at almost every turn. The short trials should not be taxing to a reasonably healthy individual, but they are not paved and do have uneven rocks and some stairs.
  • We come here at least once a year. My husband is a woodworker and owns a saw mill, so he has a special appreciation for the preservation of large trees. Nice hiking trail and public restroom available. Picnic areas also on-site.
  • This is a small treasure in an area that is quite remote but beautiful in old growth. A quiet and relaxing park with picnic tables and toilets. There is also designated camping and hiking trails with lots of flowing streams in the area. Not a really popular park because of the remoteness, I'm sure, so it does not get a lot of attention so it's a bit run down. All in all, a good place to escape to if you are looking for primitive camping and old growth forest with a wisp rainforest mixed in there.
  • This is an amazing area to take the kids and man's best friend and spend the day! The figure-eight trail loop is only about 2 miles if you choose to do the whole thing or you can shorten it by only hiking one of the loops that makes up the figure-eight. this area also has the biggest trees east of the Mississippi river! tons of huge poplars and Hemlock trees.
  • Nice forest trail with slight elevations. There are huge old growth trees further back on the upper trail. A nice stream runs beside the lower trail. Round trip with stops for pictures took about 1- 1 1/2 hours. Nice afternoon hike.
