Great place to hike - weekends are usually pretty crowded - so if you want to get away from the crowds at this park, do the longer trails (Hickory North and Fern Hollow). Goat Cliff trail has the best overlooks, (3), in my opinion.

Hiked in June, loved it! Beautiful scenery, well kept trails, geological formations a-plenty! Highly recommend for hiking and bird watching! We hiked all but one trail and found them easy to difficult. There are so many options there, however, anyone at any level could enjoy this park. Very nice!
