Having lived in Ohio, Florida and Arizona, state and national parks are not "new" to me. However, having visited SIlver Falls in Oregon I can honestly say that those states could learn a few things.
All the trails are well marked and when necessary due to incline, steps or railings are installed. All seemed to be very well maintained and easy to navigate. As with any natural element, there are areas which may be difficult for someone who is not physically active or perhaps impaired. However, as was mentioned by other reviewers there are spectacular sights and views obtainable by anyone.
I alos had occasion to encounter some people on bicycles, which I did not know were allowed on some of the trails. A little disconcerting perhaps, but in line with the overall attitude that this should be enjoyed by all.
The facilities were located at the two main entrances, which was plenty and they were also well maintained. At the south end of the park there is the small but adequate gift shop where goodies (including hats, shorts, walking sticks and other practical necessities) could be had. Prices seemed to be very reasonable and were all age appropriate from young children through adults. The staff member was very friendly and happy to lend assistance to anyone with a question.
The "restaurant" was adequate as well, and had some interesting choices (such as a freshly made peanut butter and jelly sandwich), perfect for providing necessary calories or just a good snack. There is an endless loop informative video that you can watch which discusses the origin of the property as well as the founding of the park. Very well produced and informative. They do provide tours and information, although my trip was more of a self guided trot around the grounds.
Parking was adequate and again, well marked. The south end additionally has a huge picnic area including shelters, which several families and groups were taking advantage of.
Overall, this would be a GREAT place to plan a weekend-day outing.
