Parfreys glen has spectacular scenery. There are so many unique plants and flowers. You really have to visit here all 4 seasons to really enjoy its beauty. Of course fall is stunning with its show of colors but spring gives birth to some awesome wild...More

I was really glad that we visited Parfrey’s Glenn. It is difficult to do without getting wet as there are several places where the “path” involves crossing across the stream. Because my husband was with me, he was able to go in front and hold...More

Forgive the pun, but it really is beautiful. This is a relatively short hike, but it can be treacherous! Bring shoes you're not afraid to get wet, since you're going to need to cross multiple streams to complete the full hike.

Just a great natural area to hike and take in. Out off the beaten path. Worth the time and effort. The beauty and landscape, along with the peaceful, serene scenery is unique.

A nice hike through a beautiful area. Two things to be aware of - wear shoes that can get wet and to see the waterfall you have to climb over some large rocks. Definitely worth the visit.

This is a really neat, rugged hiking spot with rocks and water. Bring an extra pair of shoes and let your feet get wet. At the end of the trail is a cool waterfall. It is a gorgeous hike.

This was a great hike. We did an out and back through the glen and enjoyed the wonderful peaceful scenery very much. It is very beautiful with the running stream and beautiful surroundings. Bring a picnic!

This is a pretty little area. It is an in and out hike which I really don't like. It is fairly long for the waterfall at the end. Maybe I came during the wrong time of year. Water was barely moving. I really don't think...More
