I go here quite frequently because it's only a ten minute drive from my house. I love the walk and my dog enjoys splashing around in the water. The only cons are the lack of parking and the crowds. On sunny days expect to park far away and deal with high traffic on the trail.
Because of the snow and ice the road to the park was closed not far down from the gas station. Added about .8 miles more to the hike to get into the park. Perfect cold winter weather for a hike, no bikes but there was some idiots on quads and four wheelers tearing up the sod near the picnic pavilion.
An adventurous balance of switchbacks and small elevations, Avalanche 1 and 2 loops are dotted with beautiful ferns in a lush hardwood forest above the Little River. Twice I passed white water below.
Traveling against the mountain bike traffic is no problem. Most travelling on wheels are friendly enough to thank me for yielding and let me know if they are aware of more bikes behind them.
