  • During a 2 week training mission I attended at Fort Knox I found this gem of a springs tucked away just waiting to be found. There are a lot of trail options for every fitness level and you can access everything fairly easy. The basis of this springs is a water plant. There is a reservoir that holds the water and a few small falls and a river that run through it. The trail is very clearly marked and there are very detailed signs at each intersection describing the options and the terrain for each way. It's up to you to decide! The stairs that are built into the side of the slope to get you down into the gorge are very steep. There are also some steps that have the steel stakes sticking up OVER the top of the step. CAREFUL! Watch your step and you will be fine. This place is gorgeous! Not to packed either. There are benches and covered tables throughout in case you want to stop for lunch that you may have brought with you. Overall a gorgeous place to visit and a perfect place for photo sessions 😊
  • Great park to explore. Many trails although they are generally climbing out of a valley or into a valley; many stairs. Beautiful place right in town.
  • It's a very get in touch with nature kind of place. Lots of long trails and bicycle paths. There are three major waterfalls that people love playing in. And for all the Pokey Hunters there are seven pokestops
  • Really nice place just discovered it. Will be back in spring and summer.
  • I loved it I dearly enjoyed hiking and exploring it. I really can't wait to come back. I love it.
