    Join a park ranger for a one-mile round-trip hike along the park's Green and Black Locust Trails in the High Knob Area. This easy hike follows the ridge to three beautiful overlooks. Take advantage of the rare chance to view the valley at sunset. The trail is not stroller accessible and not appropriate for adults carrying children in backpacks due to hazards. Bring a flashlight.
