This trail has amazing rock outcropping. We would have never found this without the recommendation of a park ranger. You can go inside the shelter ... — 2h 05m

Hiking on Middle Creek Nature Loop

Middle Creek has tons of these rock shelters! It is a moderate trail that passes 10-12 of these stone structures. You can go right in and take the pup too! #REIEMPLOYEE
