Is a bit of a walk to the water if you are moving a boat but fairly level and grassy. Feels safe leaving a vehicle there. I have seen a few deer walking around so keep it slow on the curvy roads. It is pay parking.

My family is so glad we stopped there before we began our long road trip home It was absolutely beautiful We saw deer, turtles and waterborne all kinds of interesting trees and plenty of coves where the water is nice, calm and clear We actually drank some and it was so good The kids enjoyed the large lean to's the most I'd highly recommend but beware if the slippery beaches as you get close to the water! Oh and there is a small fee to enter

A Great Day to spend with family and friends. A clean, easy hike. Bring plenty of water and have a nice lunch, but be sure to take your trash with you when you leave. Will definitely be back with the kids. A great way to earn those fitbit steps and be distracted by nature's beauty. 🌞 🌈

Great trails not too crowded pretty river decent place for a couple shots if your a photographer. At the entrance to the trail there is a nice little creek that has potential.

Beautiful place for a picnic, or a hike! Trails are very beautiful. The trail goes right next to the river, with breathtaking views of the rapids. There are tons of cliffs and overhangs on the side. If you go further down the trail there is a place were rocks jut out into the middle of the river. You can walk down to the end, and be surrounded on all sides by water. This is a great place to take pics, or eat lunch. If it is your first time going here, you should take at least 2-3 hours of your time since it is a national park, and you have to check out the visitors center.
