  • Park is very beautiful! Short walking distance to a lot of trails and lakes. Very long drive on dirt roads with a vehicle but I didn't mind that. I love nature and being outside. I don't think there w...  more »
  • This place is awesome. You have to go back several times to walk all the trails and that may not be enough...camping there is probably the best option. We're going camping there in a month and we're pretty excited. The trails and waterfalls are a real thing of natural beauty. The Shades of Death trail is definitely the best trail and most difficult. I have no clue why anyone would suggest this trail as easy a D kid friendly...it is NOT kid friendly. Maybe for a 10-12 year old. Nevertheless it was an awesome experience, a wonderful place to visit I highly recommend going
  • I've only been to Hawk Falls and Sand Spring Beach here, but the hike was nice and wide and shaded for majority of the trail. There were several nice spots to enjoy the cool water. The only drawback is that it seems to get super crowded when the weather's nice, especially the beach.
  • Hickory Run is a beautiful state park. We hiked Hawk Falls and Shades of Death which are both easy trails with great views. Even just driving through would be with your time. Loved it.
  • Had a great weekend here. Clean Bathrooms (for the most part, there was a bit of rain so the floors were a little muddy at one point.). The site we were on was maintained and the fire ring was in great condition. Only down side for me was the proximity of the neighboring sites and lack of privacy, but this does not apply to all sites, just the ones we stayed on.
  • Great park, home to Boulder field which is pretty amazing on its own. You can easily spend hours here and have a great experience with your family. Please remember though leave nothing but your foot prints and take only memories when you leave.
