“Pick a trail, any trail.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Pick one of the trails and then go back another day to do another. Make sure you have comfy shoes and your camera. Beauty at it's utmost. You don't want to miss nature showing off. Go in the fall for the colors, wait, no the summer to see and hear everything... no the spring. Oh ok, the winter.........

“great outdoor fun”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

superb outdoor adventure with great scenery and activities. Wonderful choice of hikes for all ages and experience levels. A great choice for families-not for children below 4-but the playgrounds and lake added to the charming experience and allowed even the youngest children to enjoy the environment.

“Nice picnic spot”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Great little hike to take on a sunny day. Only 10-15 minutes from the resort and has several trails so you can choose easier or more difficult ones

“Take Time to see this”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

What a beautiful place to visit. The falls are breathtaking. The hiking paths are well maintained and easy to walk but if you don't care to climb a few stairs, this may not be the attraction for you. You can spend an hour or all day enjoying this park. Not a crowded and a beautiful natural area to see. QUIET and thoughtful place.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

What a beautiful place for a hike! We took the red trails and saw all of the waterfalls surrounded by the fall foliage. The wood bridges were really cool along the trails. It was nice to get out and enjoy the fall weather for one last weekend.
