A nice hike to the dam and back. Some moderate uphill hiking on mostly rocks. Great views in a couple of spots off trail. The downhill on the way back is easier. Fun time with gf and 7 yr old.
I grew up near this park, until I joined the military. Its not that great for hiking.
Cattail Pond trail was a varied trail with rocky creeks, old ponds, pine and hardwood forests, and small bluff. Note that to get to the trail you have to start at the Rough Canyon trailhead and travel a mile before you get there. The trail is well marked but the cross trail signage is in poor condition. Make sure you have a trail map.
