Site of an ancient Indian village, interesting for the history. Nice general hike.

Def need to come back and spend more time here. not a big park, but the feeling you get reminiscing of the Indians and how they must have lived was inspiring.

We have been to Millstone Bluffs twice. The kids really enjoy seeing the petroglyphs. This is a very easy hike/ walk. Definitely take the time to stop if you’re close by!

Walked this in November 2015. The trail goes steadily up for a short distance, with wooden stairs at the top, As you walk along the top of the bluff, there are signboards describing the house foundations and stone-lined graves. There is also a platform to view the faint petroglyphs. An interesting walk.
