How to Get There

Beautiful and Easily Accessible

This was a great and easy hike to take during sunset. So beautiful with 360 views. The thing that struck me was just how easily accessible this hike was from the 15. I drive that Interstate all the time and have never stopped, this is just a quick 15 minutes from it and rest assured I will be stopping everytime from now on.
