Description

Park near the restrooms or official trailhead instead of the trail access directly off the road. Wear waterproof shoes or boots because you'll have to cross running water. Many people brought their dogs, but I personally wouldn't without doggie shoes because of the rocky terrain. Overall a very good hike!
