Comment: A lot prettier than I was expecting! I didn't find much info about the trails beforehand, so it was a nice surprise to walk down a trail to see a beautiful waterfall with Redbuds blooming at its base!!!

To ensure you enjoy your state park experience, be aware of the natural world. There are some areas which are potentially hazardous to all visitors. Since it is impractical to post signs at all danger points, use caution when approaching such areas as cliffs, caves, heavily wooded areas, swamps, streams, and lakes. Adults are responsible for children in their care. If unsure about possible hazards, check at the visitor center.
