  • This is a small, secluded park with excellent hiking trails. Many trails are moderate to challenging. It was sparsely occupied while we were there.  more »

  • The place is very pretty. Be warned, to see the actual Lost Maples, you will have to hike quite a bit. However, if you were like me, you could take the view in by just walking down to the stream and watching / looking at all the wonderful scenery. I highly recommend it.
  • This place is beautiful. The scenes from the top of the East/West trails are amazing, but prepare to do some work getting to the top. I've gone a few times when the leaves were turning and also when they weren't, this place is equally beautiful. Stargazing is fantastic if you camp.
  • Beautiful park with good trail variety - some trails are down in canyons, and some are up high on the bluffs with great views. Several primitive campgrounds varied from remote and quiet, to almost party-like during a visit in mid-October. Zero light pollution, amazing for stargazing. Camping reservations are a must, book far in advance.
  • Absolutely one of my favorite hikes. My husband I hike this state park every fall. It's beautiful.
  • This is a wonderfully secluded park. Peaceful! When we were there everyone was quiet most of the day and in bed by 9pm. Great place to get away from it all. We hike only two of the trails this time but both were great!
