Take a little time to get away from it all. This park is excellent for hiking and mountain biking and there is a waterfall to boot! What a lovely place to spend a few hours or a weekend.

We has some time to kill so we went to the park. The $4 per person admission was well worth it. We hike several trails, including the waterfall trail. You can swim or fish in the lake and there is plenty of camping available.
