This place was packed today due to the unseasonably warm weather. We had planned to hike the Onion Creek Trail on the south side of the park, but it seemed to still be closed from the Fall floods, so we made our way through the water and hiked around the Homestead Trail Area. The ruins of the old gristmill and home are pretty neat, but other than that the trail is pretty unremarkable. It was still nice to get out in this great weather, though.
If I hadn't been running on a tight schedule we would have made our way to the Flint Rock Loop on the north side of the park to make for a longer hike, but that will have to wait for another day.
As always, the area around the lower falls was enjoyable due to the neat rock. This area has always reminds me of the surface of the moon.
