Miles Hiked: 5.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A


My boyfriend and took the afternoon off to spend the afternoon playing in the park. We only did the hike around the falls and the four mile loop. The unmarke braided trails, are a bit confusing, but it's impossible to really get lost and the views are worth it. The four mile loop is a nice flat hike with moderate shade and a few elevation changes make it a nice workout. The trail is wide and had been bladed which isn't a good thing in my opinion, but makes things easier for a large group. Would be good for a picnic. Points of interest: the river crossing at the the beginning of the like (and at the end when you walk back out) and small group of old graves. It looks like there used to be a sign pointing them out, but it's no longer there. You can see the decorative fence surrounding one of the graves from the trail if you're paying attention.
