A great place to spend the day. The hiking is easy to moderate. You can spend an hour or the day, plenty of trails and water features to keep you busy, or kick back and relax. It is a quite and peaceful place.

There is an easy trail to get to the dam and waterfall. If you stop at the park office or the visitors center they can provide directions and a map. It is about a mile walk, well marked and easy hike.
