I have been by here several times, and finally stopped to check it out. It was very quiet today, and I only saw 2 other people on the trail. It is dog friendly (on leash). A 0.7 mile round trip walk down into the gorge....More

This place is not well advertised nor is it a well know tourist destination but it is a great little state park and well worth a couple hour stop (or less). It is advertised as 0.7 miles and my guess is it is longer round...More

The gorge is incredible being in the southern part of the state. I have been numerous times but this time the store was open. The woman there was friendly informative and helpful. It is an easy walk and worth the stop.

Trail is easy to follow and even maintained. The Gorge is very pretty and easy to get nice views. Two bridges cross the waterway. It is easy to walk with small children and older adults.

Pleasantly surprised. And free! Cute gift shop, well maintained trails, open parking lot, beautiful views. Not an expanse of property but the water winding through the overhanging rock ledges made for beautiful pictures, especially with the leaves coloring in October. If you are up to...More
