This is right down the road from where I grew up. I grew up calling it Booger Mountain (locals name). That being said, I have been all over this mountain before it was a "park". I liked it better before it was a park, but it isn't bad now. Also, before the park was there you could still go down in to the cave, but they have blocked it off for good now. I'm glad you can still sit in the Indian Seats at the top. There is a lot of great history on this mountain. Fairly easy hike. You can make it as short or long as you please.

Great out and back hike. Beautiful waterfall. You may see all types of wildlife. I've seen deer, turkey, and hogs. Bear sign is there also

Very quiet on a weekday morning. A very easy trail with nice views of the lake. Most of the picnic tables are broken and not maintained. There wasn't anything in the guides that even promised that they were available, so even the occasional nice table is a bonus place to sit and rest.

There are many side trails that lead right up to the water for a nice beach picnic. This place would be great for a family hike!

As a bonus you might be able to find the ruins of the older campground.

Started at upper parking lot and did a loop out the approach trail and back the Len Foote trail. Fun trail but recommend hiking the Len Foote trail both ways as the views are much better on that trail and if you can time it right lots of rhododendrons!!

This may be a favorite hike now- it's up there with Cloudland Canyon. near the end it's VERY steep and it had rained the day before so it was also muddy and slippery. Next to the waterfall / swimming hole there's plenty of room to camp and picnic. I loved that there are also plenty of places along the trail to stop creekside and sit on a rock or wade in the water. Overall, beautiful, challenging, fun and rewarding hike.
