There are two historical Indian Mounds at this site. Both of which have long staircases to the top. They are totally doable by little ones but they need close supervision going up and down.

Fee & Parking Details

Fee : $3.00

There is a $3.00 state park fee to use these grounds.

Most of the trails are all terrain stroller friendly. I choose to carry because I find the roots hard to manage the stroller over and I enjoy the trail that is not stroller friendly.
