This trail had a lot of potential. It was really beautiful, but the trails were poorly marked. Twice we were on a “loop” that dead ended in an overgrown area. The facilities were very well maintained, but the trails need to be clearly marked.

HikingBugsGreat!

Nice trail, well marked, quiet. The bugs were really intense the day I walked it.

Dense forest & right on the river. River floods trails when storms come through. Lots of mosquitoes.

Nice area to hike in. There are a few rolling hills but a lot of flat trails as well. The Wildflower Trail has a slight incline and along the way there are several short trails that are out and back you can explore. There is Disc Golf in the woods as well and I am not very familiar with that. I think the trails could be marked a little bit better, it's easy to get twisted around but it's not a very big park so I don't think you would get lost. The Backcountry Trail was roped off when I was there March 2020. Cottonwood trail is my favorite and I have included a few photos.

A fun trail with a lovely view of the Yadkin. Easy enough for a 4 year old. VERY buggy though! Every time we stopped we were swarmed by mosquitoes. I would love to come back in the fall once the mosquitoes die off.

The cave was fun! I hiked in a giant circle, hitting all of the trails except Backcountry. I'll go back and do that one A little muddy to the cottonwood tree but easily passable. The trails were well maintained, freshly weed-eated and plenty of signage. I will go back to complete Backcountry Trail, Saw squirrels, a turtle in the river and a snake along the trail. It was a little black snake, so no big deal.

Excellent trail with the kids! Well-built easy steps and access down to the cave. Wet conditions for our hike but no impassable muddy areas of the trail. Cave was fun to explore. We arrived close to closing hours but were permitted by the very friendly ranger to go ahead. Couldn’t have enjoyed our hike more!
