Devil's Hopper is great for day hikes. The falls are the main attraction and people will sit out by them or jump in the water. (I would not recommend jumping in.) The Hopyard has a nice picnic ground. It's nice to walk around on a...More

Free state park to enjoy! Bring bug and tick spray along with water to drink. No food so pack a sandwich, too.
