The state park is pretty and nice but its a quick visit. But there is a hidden gem so if you're in the mood for a good and rewarding hike then make sure to go to this park.
There is a trail that starts behind the small lookout structure at the top of the park. It's a pretty well traveled trail and was easy to follow up though it did take some good memory to remember the way back so be aware. It's muddy and steep at times so good boots are a must! It's about an hour and thirty minutes to the top of an amazing peak in the middle of the valley with incredible views. You'll know it when you see it. Be aware of quick moving weather as this could be dangerous with any kind of adverse weather.
