absolutely beautiful. The boardwalk is very well maintained but if you want to see some more beautiful sights be a rebel and ditch the boardwalk for a few minutes.

A must-stop for me anytime I’m passing through. You can either march it or take your time. Light trail with nearly zero challenge, only elevation changes on the boardwalks. Towering exposed boulders and many contemplative, wooded outlooks. Well maintained and attractive boardwalks. Has been moist every time I’ve visited, despite any higher ground or open field weather conditions, so be very careful about slippery planks. Do not run!

If you live within two hours of this place, the scenery is well worth the drive. This is a short boardwalk with remarkable rock formations. If you're looking for hiking trails, visit Watoga State Park or Droop Mtn. Battlefield State Park after checking this place out.

Really nice "stroll". The rocks, the boardwalk, and the dark forest make for a enjoyable hour or so.
