Nelson-Kennedy Ledges State Park is only 167 acres but it has a fascinating variety of crevices, cliffs, caves, rock formations, and waterfalls.

This is just a wonderful park to hike and see so much beauty around. It is quiet and really gorgeous in the fall. So, put on your hiking boots. Across the street, you park and have a picnic at the tables.
