You need to take a hike to understand the title, but the park provides a lot of hiking and the lake and waterfall is lovely. I have visited it several times and every season is enjoyable.

Park has bike dirt riding trails that can be used for walking. No paved trails. There is small lake that is quite pretty. It does have swimming area but seemed to be too dirty for swimming. On the backside of lake there is man-made waterfall...More

This is a great park for all ages. It only cost $4 per person and we spent hours climbing on the rocks and taking pictures by the falls. It also has great trails for running, biking or walking. There is plenty to do.

Such a beautiful place. Good place to take pictures and great for hiking or running. We took our young children and they loved it. Loved touching the water and taking several pictures.

Just a few minutes outside of Auburn, AL - Chewacla is a park with multiple trails suitable for hiking and biking. We hiked to the waterfalls, and found lots of great photo opportunities there, plus areas along the river to get our feet wet.
