Collier Memorial State Park features a campground; outdoor museum of historic logging equipment; relocated pioneer village; and a new four-corral, primitive horse camp and trailhead. At the state's finest logging museum, you'll see rare and antique logging equipment dating to the 1880s, as well as more recent pieces (download the museum guide; requires Acrobat). Railroad buffs will enjoy learning about the role the railroad played in logging. You can imagine the rugged woodsmen and the immense task of moving raw timber with innovation and brute force. The pioneer village gives you another insight into how these families once lived. The Williamson River and crystal-clear Spring Creek converge in the park. The Williamson River is regionally famous for its quality trout fishery and consistently produces trophy fish. Spring Creek gushes dramatically out of a nearby spring, and then paints a picture-perfect scene as it flows through the park. In the summer, movies about old-time logging and other topics are shown at 9 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The series continues right through Labor Day. During the day, the park naturalist schedules short hikes along the Williamson River. Check the park when you arrive for a list of times. From the equestrian trailhead, you can ride north from the park across national forest land to the Jackson F. Kimball State Recreation Site and beyond. Whether you come for the day to visit the logging museum, the pioneer village, or play along Spring Creek ? or even camp amongst the pines along the Williamson River - you'll discover a grand adventure at Collier.

this app seems really cool and can't wait to get out there to try it out

More of an easy hike, rather than a moderate hike, and that’s coming from a 70 year old. Our dog had a great time swimming in the Williamson River.

Very peaceful and beautiful hike (especially along Spring Creek), but the Williamson River attracted several mosquitos.

SO many mosquitoes. The creek is the nicest part - some of the clearest water I've ever seen. The river was still and the trail hardly ran along it. There was a .5 mile river loop at some point on the trail, but it was overgrown and muddy so we didn't walk far into it. We soon after turned around because of aforementioned mosquitoes.

Hot and dry but some very pretty river views. Level and dusty; I'd rate it an easy hike. Unfortunately we did a fast return hike due to swarms of mosquitoes.
