How to Get There

Beautiful, easy trails

My boyfriend and I hiked here for our two year anniversary, and it was absolutely beautiful. However, many people know that it is, so it was more crowded here than we would have preferred for some quiet time in nature: Nevertheless, we had a great time walking around and watching the birds and the water. And there's a perfect little spot under a tree that's right above the water, making for a great picnic place. This is more of a walking trail than a hiking trail, but there are some really cool trees to climb.
