  • This park offers many paths to take and is good for all ages. I suggest going up to the ridge to look at the views on either side. Love this place! Great place to bring the sketchbook and watercolors.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful trail year round. Not a difficult hike, but it is great for being so local.
  • 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 jog..Paradise fall is pretty good
