My son and I hiked the red and white trails. The red trail was pretty easy until the old mill. After that, there were some areas that had us climbing over boulders. We both thoroughly enjoyed the hike. The scenery is breathtaking! Make sure you...More

Our son took us on a hike to see the old mill. The trail was very pretty along the rushing water creek. We took some amazing pictures. I am looking forward to hiking some of the other trails in the park.

I visited the park in order to see the ruins of the New Manchester Factory. Life in New Manchester, now encompassed by Sweetwater State Park, centered around a huge 5-story textile mill. The mill was powered by a headrace channel diverted from Sweetwater Creek. It...More

Very nice place to go for a hike, fish or walk. Lots of things to explore and enjoy. Only problem with the park is the parking fees. Local parks with parking fees seem unfair.

We love to take our dog and walk through this park. You can also see a piece of history, an old Civil War factory. Right along Sweetwater creek.
