Took the family on this hike. Ages 9 to 50. It was fun but challenging! The trail is not marked so be careful not to take a wrong turn. There is a delightful running creek at the bottom. The kids had a blast playing in it. Wish we had more time to play but we had to get back before dark.

It's definately a workout, but very good place to hike. But, when I was there, I didn't find any brochures on the trails so we had to navigate the old fashion way. So, bring a compass, just in case. And also, keep an eye out for VERY LARGE Timber Rattlesnakes in the area. They love to rest at the base of large boulders in the brush. My fiance and I took a break from the trail about 30 ft. away from the trail, on the way back I stumbled upon the biggest Timber Rattler I've ever seen. He played dead the whole time, but he was about 6 to 7 ft. long and about 4 inches in diameter. Keep your eyes peeled out here.
