Beautiful place to slip away to...a few steps from your car and you enter a different world. A dense canopy of trees and several waterfalls allow you to imagine what life here might have been like hundreds or even thousands of years ago,

Plenty of trails to walk/run or take a dip in the pools with your pup! There are a variety of trails so it is easy to find a mild flat really wide trail or more single track as well.

Yes, there are many places in the park to read a book. If you want to be near the falls, I would of course bring a folding chair or spread a blanket.
