Great for walking or running while enjoying the scenery- especially during the warm & humid summer months. The trails have a lot of variety & seem to go on forever. Must see when in Columbia.

Many miles of hiking trails, particularly nice in the spring. And the "Devil's Icebox" takes you way down to where you feel the cool of the air from an underground river. The whole area is filled with sinkholes from the "Karst Topography," and if you...More

Great, wooden trails through beautiful woods. The wooden trail is a little short (only about .5 miles) but there are a lot of gravel trails that shoot off, too. The cave is also really neat and they offer guided tours through them that are awesome.

This is a really quiet, relaxing place to hike. The trails are organized well and are easy to get around, as the heavily-traveled ones have been made into stairs. The creek is good for kids, shallow with some fish and lots of places to play....More

Seemed well organized and the few trails were nice. There was a rowdy bunch of kids at the part we were at that which kind of ruined it. There were a lot more to go and see but didn't make it. I will probably try...More

Several great hiking trails. You can mountain bike here but be ready to spend some time, there are a lot of trails to explore. If you don't want to do a lot of hiking, just play in the creek. Lots of family fun.
