We had a great time here. Trail 5 leads to Wolf Cave, which can be traveled (about 5 minutes of tight quarters, ending in a belly crawl). Trail 3 leads to the Falls (can be viewed from an overlook, or you can get down into the creek and climb around). Trails 7 and 10 offer beautiful creekbed hikes. Some areas are deep enough to "swim" even after days of no rain. Be ready for the 130+ stairs back up and out of the trail. This place is kid friendly (we took our 2 year old), but a carrier helped greatly in rocky, slick, and unstable areas.
The trail was nice and worth the 1.5 hour trip but not remarkable. Wolf cave, which is along the trail, is pretty cool. Don't wear stuff into the cave that you don't want to get too dirty like the new shoes I wore because you'll be on your hands and feet at times.
Great trail along river(trail3). Bug spray is a must. Visit wolf cave (trail 5) but know that you will be crawling and you may want knee protection and a flashlight. FYI they sell minor hats with a light for children at the Inn. We were able to see red headed woodpeckers, yellowtail butterflies, millipedes, newts or salamanders. We did see people swimming in the river. Bring drinking water.
Easy to moderate 2 mile hike on wide trail. Goes through the nature preserve past sink holes to Wolf Cave which is a small cave that can be crawled through. The track then continues through the preserve and crosses creek several times and has well graded hills. Dogs would be welcome. Not handicap accessible.
If you have never been to McCormick creek state park.let me say it is breath taking. Well marked trails, an old quarry, high cliffs and a cave to to name a few things. The falls are not huge but are beautiful. The cave was fun to crawl through which the park suggest you try. You have to crawl through part and through the exit at end but is worth it! such a fun place! Will be back I'm sure!
