It is always easy to park and walk a long of short way. The trails are lovely and well kept. There are many interesting spots along the walk. Even the grand children loved it.

Nice loop trail with an old cabin. Not a very strenuous hike. We took our time and did the loop and Cataract Falls in about an hour. Good for an easy stroll in the woods.
