The Three Springs Trail in Roman Nose State Park takes you to a hidden waterfall with natural springs and wading spots. This is a great hike for the whole family. 

The Natural Springs Trail located in Roman Nose State parks is an excellent family friendly hike. The trail is very easy to find . When you come in from the park entrance just keep going straight do not take the right fork.You will keep going for about 2 miles. You will take the right turn onto P10 road , this will lead you straight into the parking lot were you can park. Once you get out of your car you will walk down some stairs. Off to the right you will see the pool go to your left and keep walking . You will come across a play ground the start of the trail is right behind the playground. 

This is a family friendly trail, its mostly flat and there is little to no elevation gain. The trail winds along Beaver Creek , wading is allowed in the creek it a perfect place to cool off in the summer months. Right has you enter the trail you will walk over a bridge , off the the left there is an entrance to the creek with a small waterfall .After you cross the bridge you will come to a small cave with a hidden waterfall . There is an entrance were you can get into the creek and walk back to the waterfall . The water is pretty chilly year round since it is feed by a spring . Has you keep going you will come across  a Natural Sprig about .1 mile in . You are allowed to wade in the springs. After you pass the springs you will come across a covers pavilion to the left of the pavilion is the exit , which will dump you into the back of the parking lot.The trail is mostly flat expect for a couple of small climbs. 

This is the perfect trail for a family hike. The best time of day to go would be early in the mooring or in the evening. The Natural Springs and creek can be quite crowded during the summer months, so be aware. You can also walk the whole creek along the trail.

Hike the Three Springs trail at Roman Nose SP Reviews

If you hike all the way around the lake it might be a decent walk, but when I went the dam was damaged making this impossible. There is a high point halfway between the trail head and the dam that makes for a decent vista. I'm not sure if I would consider this a good beginner hike because even though it is easy, the reward isn't enough to get someone interested in hiking. I'd recommend taking this walk if you are already camping at Roman Nose, but as its not much of an adventure I'm not sure I'd go out of my way for it.
