Route: Prospector Tr to River Tr to Laurel Branch Tr to Geological Tr to Ridge Tr to Laurel Branch Tr
Type: Loop with some extra
Distance: 4.6 miles
Conditions: Partly cloudy
Impression: This is a nice state park to go and visit with the family...each of the trails i did were less than 1.5 miles and i would say nothing more than average difficulty...there are a couple of pull-offs on the side of the road that also give picturesque views of the rocks, river and gorge...for the avid hiker looking for an extreme hike, this is certainly not it, but if you live within a 2 hour radius and want something to do on a sunday, this would be a great spot to bring the family and dog for a picnic and some nice nature walks...
