I've been going here since i was a kid. since being an adult i missed a few years but plan on taking the family this year. There is a very long trail that leads all around the park. There's waterfalls to get wet in, and if your into rock climbing there are cliffs for that. In order to get to the bottom of the park were the trails are you have to go down a HUGE set of sairs and in order to get back to the car you must go back up them. I think that park is the most tireing. Heres an snippet from the website i found:

We loved this park too, though now they have closed off some trails and such, not quite as exciting as when you could rock climb etc... Though, they still let people climb th woaterfalls in the winter if they freeze!!
