    Avery nice trail with several stops which included information placards describing the various formations and history found in this area.
    We had a fun group of interesting folks to enjoy a great afternoon outdoors.

    This hike is a pretty easy one but goes by a couple of springs so there are some cool features along the way. The path is well traveled so although I always recommend hiking boots, lots of people get by with sneakers on this trail. It should be a nice day but all good hikers prepare for the worst so wear layers in case it gets chilly in the forest.
