This tiny 78-acre park is located in a steep gorge. That makes it one of the few places in this part of the state that likely wasn’t ever logged over. Don’t expect to see towering timber though. The steep, rocky mountainsides aren’t especially hospitable, so stubborn, stunted oaks predominate. Interspersed among those trees are rock formations, including Castle Rocks—spires of sandstone said to look like the towers of an ancient castle. The park is especially pretty in June, when the mountain laurel is in bloom, and again in fall when the foliage is at its peak. Rauchtown Run and its tributaries provide good wild trout fishing in spring and fall.
