Pretty place to walk or hike or just view.

Beautiful water falls, and I've heard the hike is great (not a hiker myself, so you can't get my opinion on that part). Even the frozen falls are cool.

Came up here to hike and geocache. The drive through the canyon is gorgeous, with lots of pullouts & trailheads. Be aware that the road is steep in places. The end of the road has a huge parking lot that was nearly full in the morning (in November!), but less busy by noon. There were NO restrooms at this trailhead,... More

Very nice park. Lots of trails. Lots of waterfalls. Lots of picnic areas. Lots of photo opportunities. But, restroom facilities are not always easy to come by.

What a wonderful place to visit. The hikes are challenging but so worth it!! Loved all different overlooks and Helen Falls.

This is a very neat little park right in the middle of the city. The winding road takes you up through a forested canyon with jagged rock formations. There are multiple hiking trails that look fairly rigorous because of elevation gains. We didn't have much time, so we just did a short hike by the water fall, but it was... More

My husband and I went here two days in a row to hike. We found the trails to be perfect for a 2-3 hour hike full of excitement and outstanding views. We would come here again if ever back in the area. We did Mt Muscoco and Seven Bridges:

I was wowed by the drive through the Canyon on the way to Helen Hunt Falls. But the sun was setting, so I decided to return the next morning to check out some of the many trails along the way. I recommend starting at the top (past the lot for the Falls -- where there's a bigger parking lot), and... More

Great place to mountain bike!!! Watch out for the hikers that don't see you because their eyes are glued to their mobile devices. Why do people have to use mobile devices on the trails? Turn off your phone and enjoy the scenery :)

Decided to take a morning hike alone. Drove up the mountain a long way just for the views. After getting to the top I turned around and stopped for a hike! I ended up going 3 miles in nearly all up hill! The views are amazing!! SO many trails to take and many run into each other. Make sure to... More

Last year after we got rained out at Helen Hunt falls we came back down the mountain and kept noticing little turn outs here and there, where the creek ran right next to the road. Since it was raining we decided that it wouldn’t be a great idea to get out and explore. This year since there wasn’t any rain... More
