“Fun time hiking with Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

I grew up going to this place as a kid and could not wait to take my kids there. They loved it from the start sliding down the big sliding rock in the front, hiking the chasm with family, exploring some caves and crevices. We all loved Fat Man's Misery and had a blast climbing through it. Great experience for people of all ages. Moderately difficult hiking in some spots but worth the hours or so to explore through!

“Great hiking ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Great place to hiking and enjoy the out doors. Trails range from easy walk in the woods to more rugged.

“Purgatory Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

A Long hike into the woods not for the faint of heart. Up and down and then finally before you a beautiful water fall. Well worth the hike. But go early. ON the way back it was starting to get dark.

A great natural getaway. Sometimes too many people, which for me defeats the purpose.........................................................................................................................

“A blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

I had an 11 yr old, 8 yo and 7yo and they had such a great time. I had been there a few times years before so I was rather disappointed in myself for wearing flip flops. DO NOT WEAR FLlP FLOPS. The kids loved climbing and the area is really beautiful!
