  • Very enchanted place full of beautiful scenery. A lot of scenic drives through here. Watch out for local traffic though as you tour around. They get a little inpatient. Pull over and let them pass.
  • We hiked Hermit Peak in late May, the weather was pleasant to hike. I took us 4 hours to hike up the peak. The downhill descent was relatively easy so it took us about 2 hours. It is a moderate hike if you are used to hiking. There were a lot of campers camping out probably because it was Memorial day weekend. We could not locate the cave of the Hermit. Great location for hikers, photographers and outdoorsy people. I would recommend it.
