I have just discovered this park and love it! The falls were a welcome surprise! Moderate hiking trails with creek and rock jumping required. The fallen trees, some blocking the trail, just add to ambience here. It is amazingly beautiful!

Nice,but crowded on weekends and folks with loud boomboxes by the pond and in the parking area. Trails were even crowded. A lot of trash lying around in the busy area. And, a couple of very creepy middle aged men.

Cute and tiny spot. Nice place to go fishing with kids. Cute little swimming area and picnic spots. Love the stone bridge/waterfall. Pretty spot without any cost.
