Beautiful hike, a little challenging for my 6 yo boy as the trail is steep and rugged.

I gave this trail an extra star for hiking in the rain. The path is beautiful and very well maintained with minimal exposure to the sun due to the canopy of trees lining the trail. Combine this with the ease of following the trail along a beautiful stream and the ability to bring your dog along this wins a hard-earned five star rating.
