The grist mill was so nice to see. It is a working grist mill. We were able to go inside to see the actual grist stone and hear the State Park Ranger explain the process.

This park is beautiful any time of the year, but especially in the fall. It is a very quiet and peaceful place. You can really connect with nature.

We visited the grist mill for a photo opportunity. This is really a lovely spot. I wish we had arrived earlier in the day to spend more time exploring the park. We'll definitely return.

Went here on a whim after talking to another tourist. This place has so many scenic views and photo opportunities. Saw numerous deer. The grist mill was especially interesting for me. Lots to do there. Another WV gem.

It will have begun, but as with most weather related things, it depends on the weather as to how much it has come out.
