A well maintained trail generally for beginners. Attempted the Nature's Corner loop but had to backtrack when trail was lost due to heavy leaves and low traffic due to a bridge being out. The trails are generally flat along ravines or ridges except for 3-4 steep descents and climbs between the two.

Really enjoyed hiking here. The two areas where it said 'bridge out, proceed at your on risk' were the most fun. Not a hard trail but there are a few areas where trees were down. Just made it more fun.
They are currently doing some work to shore up ledges. Awesome work!

We have hiked this park several times and we always love it! It's maintained fairly well; we did encounter some blowdown and a bridge out, but we maneuvered through it all just fine. I probably wouldn't label the trails as "very difficult" but there are quite a few steps. It's a beautiful state park only an hour from us.
