Yes, there definitely is parking at Horse Thief Springs. If you hike it, be prepared - especially in early summer - for lots of undergrowth including briars and plenty of ticks. The horse thiefs hid there for a reason and it wasn't cuz it was popular. However, it is a fun hike that will spin your mind back in time. The botany is unique too.

Kevin, the hosts at Talimena State Park told us that the area you're referring to is handled by the Forestry office. We believe there is parking available however, be advised that there are no patrols along the scenic drive, so parking is at your own risk. For more information on parking, please call 413-687-7052. Have a great trip and thank you for using TravelOK.com!
