Nice trail with river access. We brought our dogs and had a great time. Not difficult, but there was lots to explore.

An evening "stroll" along the River Scent Trail. Nice park. Interesting history. Will go back and explore the other trails, someday.

Spectacular views of the Meremac River below are well worth the hike up the hills here. A favorite park of mine.

My first visit there & hiked the Scenic River Trail. Peaceful and beautiful hike - nice to have this great state park so close to suburbia! Park is extremely clean. Unfortunately, most of the trail markers have gone by the wayside causing a bit of confusion for a first-timer!

This is a really cool trail to hike in my opinion. I didnt find it all that hard of a trail, I think that it is a good trail for younger people to hike. The views over the bluffs are really cool. Don't hike this trail when it is 100 degrees outside.
