Came for geocaching event... loved the views from this park. The road up was a slight scary dog my driving skills but views were worth it. Loooved the Bigfoot statue and the overlooks!

I love going to flag rock. The senery is beautiful on a clear day you can see everything. Its fun to try and find places that you know. The picnic areas are almost always clean. If you enjoy nature you will enjoy Flag Rock

Flag Rock is worth a quick trip to see the flag above Norton. You can also visit High Knob Observation Tower on the same trip. Good motorcycle ride.

Beautiful ride, challenging on a motorcycle, overlook was outstanding. We had nice weather, leaves were just turning. Be careful on the Woodbooger, can be treacherous.

A nice quick jaunt from Norton. Narrow paved road up the mountain with minimal shoulders; probably tough for RVs or campers. But great views overlooking downtown Norton. Bridge to the overlook was a bit dated and in need of repair (seriously - there was a...More

This is really a nice recreational area, camping, hiking, fishing and a great views of the mountains from the overlook. It's a short distance from Norton and worth spending a little time
