Moore State Park is a lovely spot for a walk in the woods. To walk your dog. There's some great photo opportunities, or great backgrounds for a selfie

I have lived in the area for 40 years and finally got a chance to go check this place out. I was stunned at how large and interesting this place was. They have great maps for walking trails right on site.

The park is really beautiful. The trails are not too long making it a great place to take the kids for a short hike and absorb some captivating natural scenery. Because the trails are short, I wouldn't recommend it for the avid backpacker. There is...More

Driving down Rte. 31, you would never guess there is such a beautiful, peaceful park right off the highway. With three descending waterfalls and a mill, it is a gorgeous location for picnics and family events. All of the flowering shrubs were in full display.
