Details

Monkeying around, definition (Rex's dictionary): hiking plus assorted tomfoolery involving cool boulders and caves, providing a workout for both your legs and arms, while our hike leader plays guitar and attempts to sing your favorite songs

FOUR AREAS OF ROCKS TO CLIMB AND PLAY ON

--including a "Medicine Circle" or Labyrinth of small rocks to make you dizzy!

--plus the famous stoner cave where Jim Morrison allegedly hung out.

--Trails are wide and easy; rock "scrambling" is optional

I WILL LEAD A BIT OF OFF-TRAIL EXPLORATION TO ROCKS WE HAVE NOT PLAYED AT YET
