Grundy County is one of the most beautiful places in America! It's like a step back in time when you enter the Forrest Natural area. The world is untouched by man, and it's a rare find.

The picturesque views of Nature here are awe inspiring. A great place to wander alone or with family and friends. Gain some sanity...some tranquility...some peace of mind. Sit, relax, breathe. Get back to Nature.

This is a beautiful place. Some awesome falls... not too big... but all the same great. A lot of the trail follows along the creek bed and there are a few really good swimming holes when the water is up during spring and early summer.

Yes! Make sure to call ahead and speak to one of the Rangers first tho. The overnight parking comes with the typical warnings!
