Small park with a lot to offer! Easy, very short trails with an overhang cave, streams, interesting stream fed pond. You can get up to 4 miles of connecting trails. $2 fee per adult.

This is an awesome trail. My kids loved seeing the cave, table and rock tower. The stairs can be a little overwhelming if your not in the best of shape. We will be returning with friends to show them the trails.

Very easy walking trails that don't take you up very steep hills. The cave you can explore is the most challenging part of the hike. Walked the whole park in around an hour.

It's very clean, clearly marked trails, easy in my opinion. It's beautiful, wild flowers running water, it's adorable. Good place to spend a few hours or sit and read a book.

Another trip for a quick 1.5 miles hike with backpacks to get the year started off. The trails in great shape even with all the recent rain.

My high rating is for the cleanliness of the park (trails and even the bathrooms). It is a very small area and you will not be spending all day at the park unless you are camping. But it is well worth the visit. I would suggest you pick up one of the trail maps at the main entrance. The trails can be a bit deceiving (or even unmarked - parking areas from the trail) and you will get the most out of your time. The Lost Trail is closed due to flooding (at the time of my review). Butterflies were abundant and were my highlight of the Prairie Trail.
