It was a beautiful walk though a bit muddy this time of year which is expected. I also thought there was more than one waterfall however the waterfall was absolutely worth the drive. I'd come here again to explore other paths it was so pretty.

Wonderful trails for hiking. Lots of varieties of plants and animals. In reality there are several different trails, not just the one pictured around the lake. All of them are very well marked. The Nature Center has bathrooms. We saw a number of animals rather close to the trails, including two deer.

Excellent easy hike to recuperate after a hard day at work. Plenty of wildlife to be seen as well.
