Challenging

This trial is a little challenging. Rough terrain. I take my little fox (baby) on all my adventures. Definitely NOT stroller friendly for any type, even the off road Jeep stroller. I used my Moby wrap for this trail and it worked perfectly. Definitely pack lots of water and hiking boots. Multiple trails around this area. None are marked, but easy to spot!

A Fun Adventure

It's fun to hike and swim there,the water is very clear and you can see a lot of fish
