Good Hike For Beginners

This was a great little hike and very accesible for dogs! I went on a Saturday and it was pretty crowded; nonetheless I enjoyed the hike. Expect your shoes to definitely get wet! :) also, I would rate it as a beginners hike not so much of an intermediate hike.

Good Hike, Not For Beginners

Awesome hike, there are many other trails at the park so check them out too! Pretty rough terrain in some areas.
