Burgess Falls State Park
Lora and I took the grand daughters out for Memorial Day to Burgess Falls State Park.
We checked out the butterfly garden, but someone had already picked them all. Then we went hiking.
The 1.5-mile round-trip River Trail/Service Road Loop is a moderately strenuous hike taking visitors past four waterfalls on the Falling Water River. The waterfalls are 20' cascades, 30' upper falls, 80' middle falls, and 136' lower falls in height.
We did do a swim at the bottom of the big falls. We went back to the car and did a picnic lunch and then did some more swiming by the parking lot. They took full advantage of the playground too.
This was a very popular park today. Good clean trails and facilties.
