This park is NOT your traditional family outing park of picnics and chasing butterflies (unless your a traditional climbing family :) ), if you stop by expecting tall trees, creeks and trails you will be sorely disappointed.

We went the wrong way and it was a bit hairy with our small children. Ask someone there which way to go.
