About the Friends Group:
We are a non profit organization formed in January of 2006. Our objective is to provide support to Henry Horton State Park through volunteers and fund raising projects. Volunteers can assist with park enhancement projects such as park cleanups, trail maintenance and special events. All funds raised through the friends group go directly to the improvement of the park. Park needs are determined by the park staff and friends members. Meetings are held monthly at Henry Horton and we always welcome new members.

There are 5 miles of hiking trails and a new wheelchair accessible tree identification trail. The remains of an old gristmill can still be seen along the Duck River. Interesting geological features such as sinkholes can be seen along the Hickory Ridge Trail and wildlife such as whitetail deer, fox squirrel, owls and hawks can be seen and heard throughout the park.
