Trail starting near the camp store that looks through the nature preserve. Hill coming up into the end of the trail at the cabins caused an unexpected rest break. It is nice to have a cut over to the quarry and be able to jump on other trails.
This trail is actually a combination of trails 3, 5, 7 (and maybe some of 10) on the park map. I enjoyed trail three at the beginning of this hike. Much of it follows the riverbed and it's always fun to clamber over the rocks. Trail five (Wolf cave), is simple but enjoyable and Trail 7 gives some cool views of cliffs but isn't anything spectacular. A good hike, but better ones can be found at Shades State Park.
This was a good trail along the river. we went up it and down the river as well. I enjoyed climbing over the rocks on the sides of the river a lot.
Great trail along river(trail3). Bug spray is a must. Visit wolf cave (trail 5) but know that you will be crawling and you may want knee protection and a flashlight. FYI they sell minor hats with a light for children at the Inn. We were able to see red headed woodpeckers, yellowtail butterflies, millipedes, newts or salamanders. We did see people swimming in the river. Bring drinking water.
Great scenery walking along the creek. Enjoy taking the kids to the nature center. Be sure to sit and what some crazy birds and squirrels in the observation room while at the nature center.
Great place to visit!
Awesome hike. About lost the trail in the bottom of the canyon but luckily some other hikers helped us find our way. One of my favorite trails!! The canyon was awesome bcs it hadn't been raining much so we could explore the bottom. Went in the peak of fall colors and it was beautiful. Definitely gonna go back!
When the waters lower its fun to climb up the waterfall
Great workout, Took my kids (10 & 7) they had no trouble with it, but boy did they sleep good that night.
