Hickory Run SP - Boulder Field

Boulder Field is a really neat place, so much so that it has been named a National Natural Landmark. While there is a dirt road that can take you to it (from near the Hickory Run SP office), you can also hike there. The trail is about 3 miles each way: it's an out-n-back. Maybe not the most spectacular hike around, but still a nice walk in the woods, and a great payoff at Boulder Field. Plus you come out to the BF on the other side from where most tourists drive to it, so you get a totally different perspective on it. After hanging out there for a while and enjoying the amazing boulders, the hike back might be a bit anti-climactic, but at least it's flat and even a little downhill...

There's a JTX guide service that does a 'best of Hickory Run' tour which includes several hikes in the park, and a visit to Boulder Field by either hike or car (depends on what other hikes are included). If you don't know the area, this might be a good option.
