Awesome place with many trails.
This is a very nice drive along an historic site on the way to the trailhead of the Middle Prong Trail. There are plenty of spots to pull off and enjoy the stream. The guide brochure is very informative. You can drive, walk, bike, or ride a horse. Park at the cul-de-sac at the trailhead end and do some walking in the woods. It's very enjoyable.
