What a great place to hike & take pictures. It’s a lot of up and hills & stairs. Some can be quite difficult. Wear good hiking boots, bring plenty of water. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at a picnic table. This is a pack...More

The park and trails are absolutely stunning. We hiked in the rain that day, and it was completely worth it. The waterfalls were amazing and really running from all the recent rain. The entire area makes you feel like you are on another planet. I...More

Did a hike to Old Mans Cave and was grossed out by all off the trash on the trails. So many people smoking too and openly drinking beer. Never saw anyone like a Park Ranger to report anything to.

We rented a cabin for a last minute getaway. It was secluded and peaceful. Most important is that my husband was working in the area. He loved the 5 minute commute. The parks are beautiful. I highly recommend Jack's Steakhouse for a delicious meal.

Comprised of seven separately named sections attractions, this park appeals to visitors of all ages. Cantwell Cliffs is one of the more challenging sites due to a large number of vertical steps. It would be challenging for someone with arthritis but it is home to...More

Hiking and Natural Areas: This state park is astonishingly beautiful to hike and explore. There is plenty to enjoy in forests, streams, caves, and just really interesting places geologically, biologically, and historically. The hikes are very easy to moderate and I was pleased with the...More

If it's one full day, you can drive to Cedar Falls, park, hike down to the Falls (a short and easy stroll) and then return to the parking lot and find the trailhead to Ash Cave. There is nothing spectacular on the way, so... More

We only went to the state part but IMO, you could easily make a good day out of just that. There are multiple paths and photo ops galore.
