Wow!
Oct 2020
We were visiting family in the area, and my son asked me if I had ever been to the overlook. Didn’t even realize that this place existed! We drove up and when I saw it I was blown away! What a beautiful view! A lot of people were here enjoying it as well.

It is just a nice spot for photos or enjoying the view.

Bear walking right by the trail!!!!
May 2020 • Family
My family went to thatcher park for hiking almost every weekend for over 2 years. We never had issues with any trails and this whole time I didn’t realize there’s bears in the park till today! I came here today with my 2 years old son and my husband. We saw a lot of kids hiking there too that’s why we thought the trails are safe. We went on the yellow color trail today(sorry I don’t know the exact name of the trail but it’s the area where a bunch of different colors trails are connected such as paint mine and natural trails) we were super close by the entrance of the parking lot I would say about 15 mins walking from the parking lot and it was around 1pm. Me and my son were by the water looking for small fish and my husband saw a big black bear walking across the river that’s about 20ft from us, I looked up and we decided to slowly walk away from that bear. We think that hear has been following us because we been hearing this bear popping jaws sounds from above us while we were in the middle of the woods. Sorry I didn’t take a picture I was too scared of bears I have never seen one in my life till today. The size of the bear is decent but please be alert that there are bears in the woods and that bear was really really close to the trail and it was a busy day.

Amazing views and quiet despite it's popularity
Oct 2019
We happened upon this park after plans for another event fell through and so glad we did! Aside from a small glitch with the machine used for paying the parking fee at the main entrance (wasn't accepting cash) we had a great time here. The views were absolutely amazing from the Horseshoe Trail we took. The Visitor Center was gorgeous, the restrooms immaculate and staff extremely helpful and friendly. Despite the fact that the park was quite busy it retained a quiet and peaceful vibe. We are already planning our next visit!

What a view.
Oct 2019
While on a fall foliage road trip we found the pull-off area with a wonderful view of the valley below. The parking spots were hard to come by as many folks were enjoying the beautiful foliage. The walkway has some detailed displays about the area and wildlife that can be seen.

Amazing park that never feels crowded
Sep 2019 • Family
If you like a quick hike or take the long hike, this park has much to offer. This was our first time here and went on the escarpment trail and the Indian ladder trail. Views were gorgeous and the hike was moderate. I will return in fall to see the colors for sure. There are several playgrounds and a min zipline which was fun for the kids. So many play areas it feels never crowded.
