      A classic Jefferson County park. The main trail from the east parking lot is Castle Trail which boasts a 2,000-foot elevation gain over four miles of wide, rocky (in spots) and water bar littered trail. The trails up top get a bit more narrow and a bit more technical. The Turkey Trot trail is hiker only.

      Historic sites at the park include the ruins of John Brisben Walker’s castle, and the cornerstone of a would-be summer White House for U.S. Presidents. There is also a wooden tower, situated along Tower Trail, which visitors can climb to survey wonders of the landscape that never cease to amaze.
