This forested parkland makes for a great day hike with fantastic views, especially from the wooden suspension bridges that soar a hundred feet overhead.

It's my 3rd or 4th visit, and I want to come again. If you like nature, it's a great place to visit. Lots of fun, not too many animals, if at all.

The canopy walk is the primary reason to visit the park. Some people might be intimidated by the height and the fear of falling, but that is highly unlikely to become reality. There are protective nets on both sides of the “path,” so someone would...More

We chose the long road. Very impressive views on the canopy. The price are a bit high for what it offers.
