Hiking trails and waterfalls galore can be found in the thousands of acres near our condo. Be sure to stop in at the Sugarland Welcome Center for pamphlets and a movie of the areas history as well as a museum which features local wildlife.

This is a great place to visit. So absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Be sure to bring your hiking shoes to enjoy all the trails. If you have a fur baby be sure to check around because not all trails will accept dogs.

Check out the local hiking guides to find a trip that suits your level of comfort and allotted time. Our favorite hikes are Skinny Dip falls (medium difficulty) and Soco Falls (easy and near).

The National Park is a must to visit! The park is a free park and is the largest protected bear habitat in the East. There is a wealth of flora that is unmatched and visitors can expect to spot a wide variety of birds, fish, mammals, and reptiles. there is hiking, horseback riding and bicycling on the park grounds.
