  • Always a beautiful place to visit whether it's hiking to Virgin Falls or exploring the other trails and areas. Tons of trails to hike and drive off-road, also allow hunting in-season. I always seem to find something different and special every time I'm here.
  • Hiked Lost Cave Trail to the upper parking lot... about 9 miles. Quite strenuous. Water flow was excellent. Good display of spring wildflowers. Biting bugs were bad on upper end of trail 😮 Poison ivy has arrived 😐
