This is a great hike with pretty neat features close together. We went initially out to the Prairie trail and were very disappointed, It was featureless with limited views and the trail is a dirt road. We took a look at the map and went back to the parking area closest to the end of the road and found the Wash Pond . It had just rained and the small waterfall was running and set a beautiful scene. From there we made our way to the Rock Tower and had a picnic lunch at the foot of the tower. The Rock Tower is the highlight and the trail leading up to it is isolated and a makes a great trail. Also the cave is a neat feature but the trail there was pretty overgrown with poison ivy. We were all alone on the trails and I would have rated it a 5 but in places you can hear the highway traffic loudly.
