I really enjoyed this hike! The trails were well marked, though due to a “user error” I had a tricky time figuring out where to go and when. I recommend using the app as you hike to keep things moving along. Lovely waterfall, and amazing views at the top. I’ll for sure go back in the fall for the foliage.

For the Hill hike portion, would recommend hiking poles .

Good trail, we didn’t do the creek because it had rained the day before. Nice views and kids were easily able to join

Overall a beautiful hike, but not very challenging. Getting up to the look out spot gets your heart rate pumping, but that’s about it. Looped around twice and took a few different trails just to take up time. It is however, a beautiful trail with a little waterfall, a lookout, and pretty cool walkway paths.

Fun trail! We did this last weekend and enjoyed how rocky it got toward the middle. Was a little buggy on the trail, I believe horse flies. Put some spray or essential oils on and you’ll be fine!

Middle trail very steep and rocky and a fun challenge. Lower creek along the water was fun for the kids. Kids ages 5,6,9,10 all loved it!

This trail is beautiful! Everything is kept up with and nicely marked. The trail was easy enough for my 3 year old to handle. They also have an area with picnic tables which was perfect for an after hike picnic.

Awesome trail. Challenging inclines and rocky bits but worth it for the view. My 8yo and 12yo loves climbing on the rocks.

one of the best trails ever. I would say that part of it is not moderate. 30 minutes up Rocky Hill and 20 minutes through a rock valley but the scene at the top makes it all worth it

This trail has a little bit of everything. Rocks, boards, a little mud and a great view at the top. Well maintained and marked. Be sure to wear your hiking boots to make the rocky parts easier. I would definitely do this trail again

Great park to walk/hike/run. Today was the perfect temperature and the sun was shining. I’ll go back again as soon as the quarantine is over!
