This really exceeded our expectations. We were so impressed with how manicured and beautiful the property is before even entering the park. The bathrooms were sparkling clean and handicap accessible. The items around the yard, historic barn and house are interesting too. Great picnic area...More

This is a great place to hike and explore. The rock formations are impressive and the hike serene. Trails are well marked and interpretive. This is a great place for a casual hike or family exploration. We are thrilled we make the trek.

This place is a must see! Bathrooms are available before you enter the park. There is a small entrance fee. The path has lots of roots, rocks, mud, and some climbing. I would not recommend this for anyone who has trouble walking or climbing stairs....More

Well worth the Drive. Get your kids into Nature, even if they act like they don't like it. Remember Parents don't frame pictures of their kids playing video games.

Our trail is an easy to moderate hiking trail. There are short stretches with a 20-30% grade and embedded roots and rocks mean that it is not wheelchair/stroller accessible. If a person can walk on uneven ground for a mile... More

There is a rest room available, some area for a blanket picnic and I think a swing set for the kids. It is open from the middle of May to middle of October.
