  • Great walking trail, a little muddy and slippery on day we visited. Would like to return during warmer and dryer season  more »
  • You can walk across the bridge and view Lock 2. Park has nice walking trails, and you can see boats and kayakers in the river. There is a visitor center on the Waterford side near where boats are...  more »
  • Beautiful walk. Easy too. You do not have to be an experienced hiker to do this place! I love the waterfall in the middle of the walk! I even saw a deer today!! The hike was a little steep in some places so just be careful walking on the edge. But I give it 20/10 ! Please come and go on this walk! You will not be disappointed!!!
  • Getting into the parking lot is a little confusing, but otherwise a pleasant experience. The trails are maintained and generally wide enough for 2-4 people wide. A great place to merge history and nature together into a pleasant hike or run. Carry in/carry out policy with the exception of dog cleanup stations at pavilion and trailhead. For an added experience you can kayak in/out vice drive. Also includes footbridges to surrounding islands for additional views/exploration. Trails are easily marked, and young kid friendly.
