Very nice park with easy trails for young children... Pretty water falls to view as well. Be mindful of your young ones as there are a few places were a fall would be disastrous.

We saw the park in the winter under about 5 inches of snow and it was beautiful. The half frozen waterfalls were wonderful to see! We can't wait to go back in the summer!

It's just a road running through with pullouts at short trails. The cave is a joke! But nice walks in the woods for those who don't like to walk far.
