Fun place with lot of physical activities. Good place for hiking too. It is very slippery when wet. Not a place for people who are not healthy or have physical disabilities.

I would highly recommend the Mattress and Muffins B&B in Benton - cute, wonderful breakfasts, great hostess, 10-15 minutes easy drive away and very reasonable.

There's 2 ways to do the trail loop and see all but Adams Falls located on Rt. 118, which can be seen before, during or after doing the loop. Stop at the park office off Rt. 487 where you can use restrooms or get trail needs... More
