The building has many feautures and lots of information and a gift shop. The walk to High Falls is a fantastic paved trail and the site at the falls gives you many views to look from. I go there as often as possible..

This is a nice state park with many hiking opportunities...a short hike to High Falls and the longer hike to Middle Falls. Definitely recommended you go and spend some time exploring in the park!
