Awesome place to see the Old Mill and walk and see the sites along the springs from the caverns! Take a moment and get out and see some awesome places.

Not much to see, but is on the way from the parking lot to the mirror lake. Don't park on the road. Go to the parking area and walk back from the springs.

Before walking down to & along the walkway beside The Old Mill, read the historial info. The history of the mill & it's function is quite interesting. We took many pictures & still stop every trip.

My family and I had no idea this was here, right next to the waterfall and we took tons of pictures to remember it by.

In addition to the cavern, we made the trek to the Spring and Old Mill. Not much to see but the stone walls. Reading the informative signs helps but I wouldn't go out of my way in the winter.
