This area is so beautiful! The first time I went my friends and I got turned around and hiked the entire perimeter or the park (and then some). But no one was complaining because it was a great hike! The Fern Hollow trail was so lush and gorgeous in the summer! You must go here. During the winter you can see tons of bald eagles flying around.

Beautiful! The view was awesome :) definitely would do it again, only reason I didn't put 5 stars is because I thought it was a little short. Theres also a cute little sea food restaurant near by "Fin Inn".

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.
