“Prety good trail running”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

I'm a visitor from the northwestern U.S. and was looking for some trail running close to Auburn. Chewacla fit the bill. Lots of relatively well-marked trails. You can mix and match to get over 5 miles on trails 1 - 9. I also ran 12 and 15 another day. Pretty fun, but weird - you'll understand when you see the map. Definitely worth a visit or two if you like trail running. Facilites are somewhat worn out, but pretty area. Staff is nice.

“We go all the time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

It is so nice to come here during spring, summer and fall! There is a lot of hiking/biking trails and places to swim. There is also a geocache which gives us a reason to explore the park more.

“Small and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great little state park. Hiking around the lake and through the park and mountain biking.
There is a large pavillion area on top of a hill with great green space and nice views.

“Beautiful Park and Scenic Waterfall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Admittance charge was $2 per person. Enjoy a very picturesque drive through the park. To get to the waterfall follow the road all the way straight through the park. You will get on a one way loop - there are no signs on the road that say "waterfall", but there is a sign noting a pavillion. Head towards the pavilion and you will see a trail marker heading toward the waterfall. It is only a couple of minutes walk down to the falls, and very much worth it.

“Great waterfall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Didn't see much on the visit but the waterfall from the dam was very nice. Good photo ops! Will do more hiking another time.
