  • This place is absolutely beautiful!!!! I went all the way to the back this time and looked around that area, they have the pond, the cave and the lake all really close to each other. Their trails are beautiful!! Not difficult at all, and right next to some amazing sights! This place is just magnificent, I can't believe I didn't know about it sooner. It's a great place to go alone, or with the family!
  • 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 😊
  • Stopped on the way back home from LBL. Great short hiking trails that aren't very strenuous. The cascades are gorgeous, and offer great areas to get some nice pictures. Definitely worth the stop if you have time (1-2 hrs)
  • 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.
  • Super pretty and peaceful but we really need to make a better job at picking trash after our selves.
