This is a fantastic place to visit - the visitors center has great displays and options for kids to explore nature inside the building. Short hiking trails take you around a pond and into the woods to see wildlife. Good for all ages.

Just driving the parkway is fun, but there's much more. Golf course for the duffers like me. Bike path for a peaceful ride. Visitor center is educational & has literature about park events. Hiking behind the VC is fun. There's a long stair climb to a plateau overlooking the river. Watch closely for the Indian mounds.

While visiting family we were taken to this park to hike and walk my GranDog. The trail system is very extensive and quite varied as to terrain. the park as well as the nature center is dog friendly. There are also lots of geocaches hidden here. We were in the winter and can't wait to return here in the spring.

We hiked here the first week in December. Some of the trails were closed due to being under water. There were still lots of trails to try. The park is dog friendly, even the Nature Center. The Nature Center had lots of cool displays, especially for kids. We were surprised to find we could bring our dog inside and they... More

Our ancestors preserved the finest of nature after the industrial revolution. The great depression added fine samples of WPA construction. This gem with it's cliffs made of layers of shale is a civics lesson hosted by mother nature.
