Its a great spot to go after school to be outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and wild life. The trails are easy and is exactly what you need to get you through the week. You can visit anytime and its pretty...love the wildlife.

Nice place for a quick day hike. There are two primary trails that offer a good work out, especially if you are not used to inclines. It can get a little busy at times and becomes unenjoyable when all you hear are people yelling into their cell phones.

Lake is dried up due to a leak and cave is permanently closed due to bat disease. However, nice nature trails and you can see outside of cave, kind of neat. we still like to visit here anyway and we took our dog for a nice walk here.

We spent two hours two days in a row here. So pretty. We loved the great hiking trails. Got to see lots of wildlife. If you can hike I recommend taking the time to walk the trails. The beauty of the cave was amazing to look at. Io bad no one can go inside anymore.

Great trail for enjoying nature. We always have fun on our walk. Fishing, hiking, and animal spotting all available. Cave is closed due to bat disease but still enjoyable.

We went with our 3 yr old it was a neat place but there wasn't a lot to see since the cave was closed. Glad we got to see it anyway.

We went just for a little visit and nice place to walk with our baby carrier. The cave is closed but you can still feel the cool air from the mouth of the cave. The area is nice, there are also deer on the trail so please be respectful of their space. Our dogs loved it.

Moderate hiking trails in good condition. Spring is great time of year to visit or in the Fall whent the leaves are turning. Some hike and some run the trails. Couple good sized hills to get the legs burning. Deer are known to be a few feet away and just watch you as you go by. Cave entrance is nice... More

This park is beautiful. Hiking trails are fun. The wildlife are abundant. Plenty of seating nearthe mouth of the cave which is really nice during the summer when it gets unGodly hot. There is a small museum here that features different displays. The staff are always friendly. But it's got one major obstacle. It's not handicap friendly at all. If... More
