A beautiful walk along a stream in a rhodedendron forest This is a personal favorite, you will walk along a stream through a beautiful forest then towards the end enter some rocky areas. The Hickory Run State Park has a National Natural Landmark in the boulder field and there are some Geocaches in the park

The trail was very popular and close to the road. It had several stair climbs and good stream and waterfall views.

Great trail, a large space with many rocks perfect for rock balancing!

.I think the rating of easy is pushing it but it's not hard. Just beautiful-I felt like faeries were hiding and watching me. My favorite trail in Hickory Park so far.

Great trail! There is a lot of water right now with the snow melt and rain we've had. The water is flowing great for pics!

Beautiful winter hike. A bit icy which was tricky at the start, but after that it was a nice stroll through the rhododendrons along the creek. Three dams made for spectacular ice!
