June is probably the best month to visit. The one mile trail is really lovely and an easy walk. Follow the "Nature Loop" signs. Such a peaceful, cool environment. No park fees. Pit toilets

Worth a trip. Very nice stroll through huge, old trees and meandering water. Kid friendly and great for photographers.
