Clarification - family with adult daughter. I’m not a hiker by any stretch of the imagination, but I did go to the cave & surrounding trails. It was a fairly easy hike. The cave is nice, lots of bird sounds but too thick to see...More

We stopped at this park to check it out before heading home from Dallas. We are planning on going back to do hiking and see more of the park.
