McKinney Falls State Park:Homestead Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The walk to get to the trailhead is a miniadventure. Go over the lavalike rock flows from Pilot Knob volcano, which created Lower McKinney Falls eighty million years ago. Then ford Onion Creek, or wade across the top of the falls.

The trail passes by the ruins of Thomas F. McKinney’s 1850s homestead and grist mill. Return to the trailhead and walk to the Smith Rock Shelter Trail to view the remnants of a natural rock shelter used hundreds of years ago."
