This family-friendly hike is not only scenic year-round, but is popular for its dismalites (glowworms) in the summertime.

This is a short and pretty trail, great for the whole family. Glowworms, called dismalites, are a special attraction in the summer.

There is a $10 fee for adults, $6.75 for kids. Dogs are allowed on leash.

This is a small hike, about a mile. It's such a beautiful place but it's very crowded during the weekends. It also costs $10/person which, I think, is ridiculous.
