  • Amazing trail. A must do! Give yourself 2 1/2 hours to get it done but its amazing. Left side is slightly more challenging, 3 of 10 so still really easy. I recommend going left to get that out of the way first. Then the right side is simple flat walk on a path the rest of the way back.
  • Beautiful pond. Must visit. Serene silence. Great for photography. Amazing restaurant nearby. Not stroller friendly. But worth visiting. Trail is too beautiful to be real.
