My husband and I headed here one Sunday with our 5 and 8 year old girls for a fun family hike. We are from TN and are use to hiking more strenuous trails, that generally lead to waterfalls. That said we knew it would not compare so I kept an open mind as I am a lover of all nature. The start of the trail looked too manmade which was a turn off. My husband was the first to point it out and to be honest, he hikes for me and is not super observant or a devout nature lover himself. Once we got past that initial part the trail became more organic and from what I can tell looks as though it would be beautiful in late spring when all is in bloom. Over all it was a nice escape from our normal view but nothing I’m eager to go back to soon either.

This is the ideal spot for a family hike. I've come here multiple times with my 5 and 8 year old to hike around the various trails. This is a great spot for bird watchers and wildlife observation. The nature center is a nice added bonus for the kids (and adults) for visiting at the beginning or end of your hike. Park hours are dawn to dusk; Nature Center hours are Tues-Sat 8:30am-4:30pm, Sunday noon-4:30pm and closed on Mondays.
