With weather warming up and spring officially started, this is a perfect destination for family and fido. If you pack a camera you should be able to capture some of the scenic sites along the trails. Stop by the visitor's center to get an idea of the difficult of each path so you can choose how you want to enjoy... More

This small state park is one of the busiest in the state and is heavily visited by hikers, mountain bikers and horse riders. There are many trails and streams to combine to make this a great place for an outing.

Visited in August 2016 while on vacation with my family. We came here to find some geocaches and check out the waterfalls. The hike to them was nice and the views were beautiful. There are multiple waterfalls, so that is really cool. It was also fun to explore the rocks at the base of them. I definitely recommend checking out... More

Whether you are local or visiting the area, this is a beautiful and accessible small forest that will get you in the forest fairly quickly for either an easy stroll or a longer hike. Enjoy High Falls, Triple Falls or Hooker Falls if you are eager to see one of the many falls in this area. We were here recently... More

For hiking enthusiasts who enjoy waterfalls, this recreational facility is not to be missed. A two tiered parking lot just off the main road(Staton Road) provides access to the trailheads leading to Hooker Falls in one direction and Triple Falls and High Falls in the other. Hooker is a very short walk from the parking lot and while being the... More

The landscape of the park was absolutely amazing. The only thing I didn't like was some folks (a whole family of adults) were horse riding and were very disrespectful, we were trying to take a family picture with 4 little kids, they just stop with the 6-8 horses and started taking pictures to each other, and did not say a...

I absolutely loved hiking here and would recommend visiting when you can play in the water, i.e. During the summer. We last visited the weekend of July 4th, like me, many other people were off work and had the same idea. The falls are beautiful and easily accessible with a decent pair of hiking shoes. I saw people of all... More

Plenty of waterfalls for your viewing pleasure. Some gravel roads to get to them. More like a walk in the park then moderate to strenuous hiking. Good activity for half a day and you can take some excellent photos.
