Trip Advisor Review: Shades State Park has many trails ranging from easy to very rugged. We especially loved the rugged and very rugged trails! Walking in stream beds, climbing over rocks and logs, up and down ladders. Viewing little waterfalls, and actually walking in the streams that flow into the waterfalls. HUGE, straight and reaching to the sky trees! Absolutely gorgeous, tranquil, peaceful and beautiful.
