I think this trail is inside rickwood caverns state park and it is a good trail and the cave at rickwood was fun to explore and also a short flat trail was cool also and then we ate at the White House restaurant in warrior,al. Great day

I took my 8 year old nephew & 4 year old son on this hike. They really loved it. The trail was easy enough for me not to worry too hard about them. The trail was exceptionally well marked & it was also free from litter. The rocks are breathtaking. The boys were fascinated at the size of the rocks & how many there were.
The restrooms in the gray building were very clean. Parking was not a problem at all. The gift shop staff was friendly. All around a great day trip & hike for kids just learning.

Fun little trailer. Great for a Saturday out with small kids. Just far enough that they sleep the whole way home.

Nice little trail. Great if u are taking kids. Lots of great rock formations. We could not see any fossils but we did see lots of animal tracks. The directions on here r not right it is inside rickwood caverns state park.
