Great family friendly place with nice clean shaded trails for easy hiking. Clean restrooms and indoor museum with historical treasures. You could hike the creeks when the water is down for more adventure.

Nice easy walk for kids. Can get a nice history lesson and if you're lucky the occasional Civil War Era firearm demonstration.

My family (my 50 year old dad, 11 year old brother, and 13 year old sister) and I hiked these trails for about two and a half hours. It was really easy to follow the trails and there were many maps posted along the way. There are also multiple signs identifying different types of trees and talking about the history of the historical site. We hiked all the way out to Sandy Creek and it was a really pretty view. The beginning of the trail is on a concrete sidewalk but after the first bridge it turns into a dirt trail. We really enjoyed it!

Today we hiked 5.5 miles of the trails here at the site. Great trails. Some very good hills too. And there's a great place to have a picnic lunch at the pond directly across from the Museum. If you enjoy civil war history you will really enjoy the hikes. Be sure to hike all the little "dead ends" as well. One or two of those have great views!

Really nice trail. You can also learn a little bit of history while you're there. There are plenty of banana spiders though.

This trail is beautiful and very well kept with great boardwalks but there were so many banana spiders everywhere! Don't go when they're making webs!
