Rock Island State Park

After getting lost on the way to Stinging Fork Falls, we decided to try a few more easily accessible waterfalls for our next adventure – Twin Falls and Great Falls, both of which are located in beautiful Rock Island State Park.

Rock Island State Park is also home to approximately 30 letterboxes. We hiked the Bluff Trail, which is a moderate 1.7 mile lollipop loop, and found 8 boxes and a hitchhiker along the way. I have a feeling we’re going to be back this Fall to find some of the others.

Rock Island State Park is very easy to get to and while the route is quite scenic, it’s no where near as treacherous as getting to Stinging Fork Falls. In addition to 13 miles of hiking and biking trails, the park offers some great places to picnic and two swimming holes, appropriately named the Cold Hole and the Warm Hole. Camping is also available for both tents and RVs.
