  • Good hiking spot. Clearly labeled and not too big so easy to get back to where you parked. Decent bouldering options for the climbers out there. Slippery when wet.
  • Good to walk your dogs here, and to break a sweat. Real Rocky terrain so watch your step. Overall it is a decent walk through the woods, I would go back.
