An amazing hike. Was incredibly packed though. But after weeks of rain I could totally understand that. It is well shaded and much cooler than I was expecting.

They don’t feel compelled to keep dogs on a leash, even though all of the signs instruct them to. Otherwise, this is a perfect little hike!
