“nice place to enjoy a little nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Come for a picnic at the many tables in the open or in the pavilion then take a relatively easy hike through the woods. Enjoy the tall pines, the rushing water and other nature. In the spring, look closely at the short waterfall and you may see the river trout attempting to jump up the falls and swim upstream to spawn.

I would rate the hike easy though there are a few areas where you'll need to cross small streams or muddy areas using log stumps that have been placed together as a sort of 'bridge'. When wet they can be a little slippery and some have shifted and are a little lopsided making it a bit of a challenge to get across without slipping.

You can do the loop or come back the same way you came. There is an information board with a trail map posted at the beginning of the trail and there are trail markings along the way as well.

Overall it's just a place to enjoy a leisurely walk, listen to the sounds of the water, birds and other small woodland animals and get back to nature.

***Please remember to take your trash with you and keep this natural area natural. Thanks!
