Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 18 Small relaxing park by Dave R.
Not a bad park to escape to for a bit. The waterfalls, and the trail that follows it down river are a nice relaxing walk. The fire tower however only gives you a closer look at of the top of the surrounding trees. You can see a little something after the leaves have fallen but the tower is nothing special. If you decide to walk the back side of the trails be ready to get your feet muddy.
February 1 Awesome. by John
Awesome park, very scenic from the top of the Fire Tower on top of the trail; you can see for miles. Great hike for a couple hours. Definitely a must-do.
