Upper trail is rather unimproved steep spots with loose soil. Not much to see but trees and ferns. OK but there's better.

Very easy family friendly/dog friendly.

Clean restrooms, beautiful scenery, great for kids! We took a jogger stroller with a baby and it fit great on the trails. Many river access points and a great play area! Very nice picnic rental areas with BBQ grills and fire pits! Requires a $5.00 cash parking fee.

Hiked the Old Growth Trail about a week ago. It was a rear kicker! I ended up going backwards (started out by the river). Lots of spiders! Took my dog I strongly sujest on leash since the trail is almost straight up and then straight down. I will say it does finger off into some other trails I just decided to continue going down. Finally made it around the loop (I was pretty close to turning back I was getting worried where I was). Bring water, it is mugy under the trees and you get dehydrated quickly.

Love there area. Grew up here and it always brings back memories when I hike threw.

Great hike! Very slippery this time of year.

The park is nice. The trail is ok. No lookout or waterfall but just a big loop and a steep uphill climb. Might come back to enjoy the creek and park someday!

Definitely worth the $5 parking fee. Trails are well maintained - we did the largest loop, and did walk single file for the duration - once we got off the small loop. Some slippery spots, and a few pretty steep inclines. We took a 9yo, who didn't really have a problem - a couple of the downhill spots were touch and go - fortunately, we ran into a maintenance team who had just dug a couple of footholds in some of the steeper spots that had been washed out in some recent rains. The park as a whole is great - picnic areas, playground, and... real, stocked bathrooms! :) Will definitely be back for swimming too!

Trail was skinny, hiked single file at least half the time. Easy hiking with short sections of steep up/down inclines. Fabulous vegetation! I'm definitely doing this one again!
