How to get there:


Type of hike/what to expect:

Easy trails in wooded area. Mostly short hiking trails alongside waterways- water levels lower/dry in late summer. There is one horse trail. Expect conditions to differ with weather- trails become quite muddy after rain & buggier during the summer. Trails range from 0.4 miles to 4.9 miles- check the blazes & map to find the right trail. Be sure to stick to marked trails in this park especially as there are many “false” trails that are under recovery efforts from the Park Service.
