Certain places just attract people. The cool, clear water of Little Buffalo Creek has been attracting people for centuries. American Indians frequented Little Buffalo Creek on hunting trips. Farmers and merchants used to gossip and pass news while the grain was ground at Shoaffs Mill. Nearby, merchants, local people and travelers met at Blue Ball Tavern. Today, thousands of people meet at Little Buffalo State Park to picnic, swim, fish, hike and experience nature and history.

ita a nice walk not to much of a hike

Absolutely love this park. It's so peaceful and the trails are very easy and brush free to navigate. Lots to do as well.

Weather was wet, but we had a nice time hiking the trails. Made the loop around the lake using the exercise trail, middle ridge trail, fisherman's trail and blue ball trail. The hiking is not too difficult and the trails are marked well. You do a little bit of climbing on middle ridge trial via switch backs. All in all it was a nice day.
