I love this place, lots of hidden treasures if you know where to look. Follow the creek up stream at the wood bridge and continue up to the springs. You won't be disappointed. You can also travel the main trail, that passes by the main water fall, across the swinging bridge and continue down until you think the trail ends. It doesn't, though it's nearly impossible to see, just keep going. There are cascading water falls, the ruins of the first water mill in Bell county, and remains of the Chisholm trail were thousands of wagons left there wheel tracks in limestone. People are trashy here though. I've picked up over 15 grocery bags worth of trash. I once carried out 6 at a time. It is a gem regardless.
