The forest at the northern end of the park has 200-year-old oak trees, and one of the two waterfalls is found here. The other is in the Bullock’s Woods Preserve area. Thanks go to Bill Davis for having the foresight to save this urban treasure.

We hiked to Red Falls and took the footbridge across the river. A hidden gem. Very easy trails. Mostly paved. Lovely, long foot bridge over the river. We walked only about 3 miles so we didn't get to cover a whole lot of ground. Next time, we'll bring bikes and pack a lunch as the foot bridge runs all the way to Durand Eastman Park. The Red Falls would have been prettier if there wasn't debris and waste in the creek below it. It's horrible the way people use our creeks as a dumping site : - ( Also, there's an old sewer (?) outlet above the falls which is a bit of an eyesore. I'd give the river walk a 4 of 5 stars, the Red Falls a 3 star rating.
