This place is great. It has a small but interesting museum, a restaurant, a treehouse built on the show Treehouse Masters, a souvenir shop, and a learning center in addition to the trail. It is pricy to check it all out, though. $10 to get in and $10 to walk (it is more money to bike ride). It is a tourist attraction, so it’s not an exclusive walking/biking trail. They do tram rides, Segway tours, fly fishing, and lots of other things. I’m fortunate enough to be a local, so I have a season pass. I go to the park very often, and since I bring my own bike, it’s free. If you live nearby, and would visit enough, a season pass is definitely the best option. The trail is paved and has been updated and worked on after last year’s flood in April. It is mostly a smooth bike ride, and if you don’t stop much, it’s about an hour ride. I believe that there are a few short, unpaved trails that go through the woods that you can hike on. There are a lot of cool waterfalls and caves to see. There might still be a brochure that has some history on those marked spots. I would recommend checking it out if you don’t mind paying $20. It’s a really great family place and all the people who work there are very nice. Sometimes it can be very crowded, so plan your time there beforehand.

I don’t understand it. I took my family there recently and paid an arm and a leg to go...walk. Here’s a tip; go to Roaring River park and walk through he campground in the valley. You’ll see the same thing, for free, and maybe even end up w some fish outta the deal. DC is a total ripoff. Boo.

We were a bit early for the full glory of autumn colors. We’ll do it again closer to first of November! Beautiful water falls and easy walking trails.

Great area for dining, hiking, and biking. Cost$$ I prefer natural habitats. Pretty waterfalls, potential to be very populated.

It does cost a little bit, but extremely beautiful place! And loved seeing the treehouse built by Pete Nelson and the treehouse masters team!

I would rate this trail higher, except for the fact that it costs $20 per person to walk the trail. It is beautiful, and most trails are paved. There is a $10 general admission fee that grants you access to a mill, tiny museum, store, and a tree house thing for kids. then another $10 per person if you want to actually walk the trail.... We will not be going back simply because of the cost...

They should say it's $20 per person to go walking, which as pretty as it was, it wasn't worth $20 to hike.
