Nature tripsGreat!

Fun area for kids to explore. My 6 and 2 year old boys enjoyed the small trail and scenery. Will visit again.

Great little short trail. Head both directions from the wooden bridge for some really serene views. Easy hike on the path & little areas you could scramble across the rocks if you wanted to explore more.

Not much of a trail but an absolutely beautiful place to visit. We sat on the rocks and just looked around for a couple hours.

Great spot to enjoy the water and scenic flow of the creek. Small waterfall and fun to cross the creek boulder hopping.

First to Review

This is a special scenic area and is worth a detour to spend an hour there. Easy to find, well maintained.
