* 405 acres * Towering old growth hemlock trees, many estimated to be over 300 years old, * Rocky gorge cut by Fall Brook with its three waterfalls. * 300 acres adjacent to the park's southern border, is also open for public access. 12.75 miles of trails in total. The longest loop is just under 5 miles and is comprised of a few different trail segments. A project to blaze new trails in recently acquired, adjacent properties, should lengthen the mileage. The trails pass through old growth forest, overlook the gorge and meander through various habitats.

Nice little gem, was snow on ground when were were here so we only went up left side trail up till road then cut over and back down other side but it was well worth it. Very scenic, and you really feel immersed in nature here, especially where the 2 streams come together. Was a little cairn garden there when I visited and was very tranquil. Nothing bad to say i just didn't get to explore it all so I can't give it the full 5 rating but the shitters were nice for the flushless type, hate to smell them in the summer.

We love Salt Springs. We enjoy the hike, the falls, wildlife, and the museum. We plan on going to some of the activities they have and camping as well.

This is one of our favorite parks. It's close to home for us so we go often when we want a walk in the woods but don't have time to travel too far afield. We've walked all the trails in the park but always enjoy our time there.

This was the second time my family and I visited. Both times we came with my sister and her husband. This time we drove to the top and walked down then back up. It is a very nice walk but it can be vigorous at times. Beautiful scenery and it was a gorgeous summer day. My guys had fun skimming stones above the water falls. I highly recommend it. They have a campground there also.

Beautiful area with the bright Spring sunshine making everything sparkle. Trails are well laid out and marked, although not highly groomed, which is to my taste but not everyones. It's hilly enough to get your heart moving but rarely at a steep incline. The water falls are worth spending some time listening to. The old hemlocks are towering! Fair amount of oak, maple and birch in their as well. Looking forward to coming back in summer and fall to see what the area looks like decked in more greenery and color.

It's a nice place to check out with a few different trails to chose from. Has a small waterfall between step gorge. My dog enjoys going there
