This park is super sketchy, odd vehicles parked at picnic shelters, rundown buildings, overgrown grounds. Poor maintenance overall, didn’t stay long because of how weird it seemed.

What trails this park may have are not well marked, most of our time in park was spent walking on a road. Park also appears to not be well taken care of and starting to look run down and over grown.

not really much here for marked trails. ended up walking some of the disc golf course. the trail down to the waterfall was cool but extremely short. i’d say if you’re looking for more a hike go down the road to hunters creek.

Really neat park. Trails are overgrown in places but still easy enough to follow. I hiked on a Thursday afternoon around 1 and the place was practically abandoned except for a couple of disc golfers. There are no particularly tricky parts to the trails, but it is hilly similar to Chestnut Ridge. Very cool views of the gorge/falls even though it is mostly dry right now. Lots of neat overgrown public works ruins to check out. Most of the park has a quiet, abandoned, 50 years after society collapsed feel. Great for a solitary walk with the dog.

The signage was poor therefore it was hard to locate the wooden trails to access the waterfall.

Hands down one of the worst trails in WNY. I would hardly even call it a trail. Worth going to maybe just to see the waterfall, but even that’s a stretch.

Had a fun time exploring this park! I recommend finding the waterfalls.

Not a hiking trail per se, but lots of abandoned roads and paths to explore. As another poster noted, several WPA era structures...some still functional but many derelict and abandoned. Nice creek with a waterfall too. Definitely worth checking out.

Haunting ghost of a long ago cherished park. Many functioning and ruins of Works Progress Administration improvements. We'll worth a visit!
