    Great place for a swim!

    Not too crowded even on a hot July weekend, and perfect for a dip in the stream or the water below the waterfall.

    Full trail

    We did the full trail and at parts it was moderate to difficult. Great walk though as it left all of us (pup included) ready to go for our next 3 hour drive with not needing to stop

    Beautiful spot. Waterfall is easily accessible and SWIMMABLE for both you and pup. Very dog friendly. Lots of picnic areas and trails. Highly recommend.

    wooden glen and babbling brooks

    Really friendly people along the trail.. really clean and ample parking. Make sure to grab some gas to fill up before heading out because there isn't too many stores near the area.. about 15-20 minutes out. It was really muddy because of the melting snow.. but the water was outrageously beautiful!!! The trail is a loop.. start on one,, end on the other and midway there is a vista overlooking the whole park with a terrific view! Good for a short day hike about 1 1/2 hours - 2 hours total.
