  • This is a fantastic place to go hiking with the whole family. There are tons of marked trails and it's incredibly beatiful. The only thing is that it's very crowded and parking is hard to find. There are garbage cans to throw away stuff so I recommend bring a small picnic.
  • Awesome place to jog..Paradise fall is pretty good
  • Great hiking, biking, etc. They used to film the T.V. series Gunsmoke here. Some highlight include Paradise Falls, Indian Cave, The TeePee, Visitor Center. Keep an eye out for rattle snakes. There are also some Pokemon Gyms hidden in here.
  • Awesome place to hike or jog. Great for kids too
  • What a great park for a hike. We come up here all the time with the kids for a relatively easy hike with all kinds of options. Paradise falls is a pretty good bet every time.
