  • Hickory Run State Park is 16,000 acres of great forest, hiking trails, and waterways (with some nice falls). Many nice trails to walk, with at least a small parking lot at the trailheads for most...  more »
  • If you or your family have ever had an argument over what to do with your free time here in this valley, Hickory Run is the answer. If you've ever argued with family or friends whether to go hiking...  more »
  • This is such a unique park (in regards to the boulders) as it truly is as amazing as the pictures look. It is a large area of massive boulders that are easy to scale and jump across at your own risk.....  more »
  • What a beautiful place to visit. But I'll advise you to wear sneakers to be on the safe side. There are lots of rocks yo step over. However, some of my group wore flats and they were fine. We did see a bear from far, we didn't disturb each other. The fall is gorgeous, tourists were enjoying themselves in the water and having a good time. It was a great experience for the entire family. I love that even though it was a bit deep in that it wasn't scary. I'll love to visit once more.
  • A very casual experience. A great little trail and park for family hikes. The trails is decently kept, if not a little unmanageable at points with roots or rocks making it a bit difficult for children. But the water features are beautiful and surrounding forest does a decent job separating you from the nearby road.
  • This is a well run and interesting park and campground for all levels of users. Can be very busy, so obtain reservations as needed. Needs some maintenance updates here and there. The boulder field is very interesting and memorable. If you like rocks and geology subjects, then it is highly recommended. Sort of like something out of a science fiction type book visit to another planet.
  • Beautiful park. Great hiking trails for all skill levels. Scenic streams and waterfalls throughout. There is a boulder field that is definitely worth seeing. Love camping here. So many things to do!
  • Had an awesome day there. Went to the lake had lunch. Then took a hike to the shades of death trail and waterfall that is there. Its a great day trip or a family day trip. I believe there was a party going on when i went so there may have been mpre people then normal. But it was still great
