his is another great park for hiking, with 18 miles of hiking trails. The 2.5-mile Flat Rock Trail rises to a scenic vista of the Cumberland Valley. Another trail leads to an overlook where you can see the “S” in the Doubling Gap. A hiking and nature trail guide, available at the park office, explains where these and other trails go and what you can expect to see along the way of each one. The park also hosts a summer concert series. It’s a fun time. Local bands play on the park lawn for audiences who set up chairs or spread blankets on the ground and eat and drink goods from a concession stand. The concerts are free, although the park’s Friends group accepts donations, with the proceeds used to pay for improvements to park facilities.
