Good day hike and swim

It’s a great spot to take the family hiking, it’s not to crazy. There aren’t any “black diamond” mountains or treacherous terrain, but there are some great vantage points. If you decide to spend the day there don’t forget your swim trunks, the lake there is a great way to end a good hike.
