Time of year
we got there on a tuesday so nothing was open but for the view of the mountain and the skylift but we were not going to pay to ride the skylift we had already paid 20.00 for parking and was there maybe less than an hour considering none of the shops were open
Get there early in the day, bring good hiking shoes, and a camera. There is a beautiful waterfall and an area to sit and observe. Pack a lunch and have a beautiful picnic, or pack a sandwich in a pack for a snack at the top.
This is a great park to visit when you don't have time to go all the way up to the Boone area. We went for a daytrip and did the Stone Mountain Loop. I have a foot injury so our original intention was to park at the lower lot and just hike to the falls. It is a nice hike past…
This is a great place to day hike for the entire family You have great views from the top. Does have a lot of stairs from the bottom of the falls to the top. Good for pets also There are some nice trails just outside the park within a short drive
It is a beautiful state park with lots of hiking trails and a lot of water falls to see. The picnic part was really pretty
