Big hill springs park is great for an easy hike. I think it's best for a family with kids. Kids would love this place. Small water stream running along the side of the hiking trail. Beautiful, quiet place not that busy place in weekdays. Enjoyed our time here.
Beautiful park, stream, trails, and small waterfalls. Near rock formations and great views. Trails are really muddy in the spring, but I plan to bring the family out again later in the year.
