What a wonderful area and so far the best blazed and posted trails I've hiked. Just about impossible to lose your way. Mostly easy to moderate in difficulty the park offers several trails/loops in it's compact 650 acres. Enough to keep you busy for a while if you like. Hawlings River was the most picturesque point of interest for me since I hiked the park in December. I'll make it a point to return in the Spring/Summer when the forest is in full bloom.

Start off in an open field. Head into the woods and down to a river creek. Dogs love swimming here. Good easy hike.
