Clifty Falls In The Spring

We hiked several trails with one being very challenging for us. These trails are beautiful in the spring with wild flowers, trees in bloom and rushing water. We camped in the campground and had time for several hikes.

Good, Nothing Special

I've been there twice now. It's a really nice park overall; there are plenty of open areas and picnic benches so it'd be great for a family get together for the adventurous families out there. The trails themselves are average, but exploring the creeks is where the real fun is. I don't generally stay on a trail. I use one to get to the creek and then just explore until I'm ready to head back up the trail or another trail.

Falls

Cool trails and decent falls! They can be underwhelming in a dry season though.
