Views of the blue ridge are spectacular

This is an amazing park that packs so much into such a small area! The views of the blue ridge are spectacular, the meadow walks are amazing, and the sense of solitude beyond words!

Amazing little place

Amazing little place. There is a very short loop most people probably do. Make the right or left into the woods depending which way you started. Go over the creek and there is a amazing other set of trails that are about a mile long. Watching the sunset here is amazing and you will get the best firefly show you have ever seen after that.
