This short beginner hike takes you to the natural spring at Haha Tonka State Park.

This hike starts out on a half mile of paved trail. From here you will climb a ton of steps to the top, which when the leaves are off the tress can offer a pretty good view. The trail connects with a few other trails on the way but is well marked so you will know what way to go. Parts of this trail are a little rough so hiking boots are a good idea. For the most part the trail is well maintained and marked. Make sure that you are in good physical condition because the stairs will be tough. The total hike time will be no more than a hour. I would recommend pairing this hike up with some other trails in the park.

Great park, Nice scenery

I love this park. This particular trail is dominantly a smooth boardwalk, with the exception of the boulder you slide between. This is one of the easiest trails at the park, and a good family hike. I enjoy going in the morning or evening because you get to see the most wildlife. It's in a valley that is cooled by a spring, so even in the hot summers, the temperature seems cooler on this trail. The park also has some summer programs. One of them is the night hike, where you hike the spring trail in pitch black with the exception of the guide's red light. You can listen to the roar of the night animals. This trail is worth a visit, but you will likely be tempted to keep exploring.
