Definitely wear the right boots. I thought my Merrell's would have good traction but they were awful and it made the rocks difficult to maneuver.

This time of year has too much foliage so the views weren't as good as I hoped for.

I'd go back though.

My third and final hike in 3 days and definitely the most challenging and shortest of the 3. I would say moderately difficult. If you are doing the loop make SURE you wear hiking boots. You will need them to ascend/descend rock faces. If you plan your steps you will be fine, but you could potentially seriously hurt yourself if you don't maneuver correctly. I got turned around and ended up coming back the way I entered rather than ending up at the exit at the lower parking lot. There is a short trail that heads down from the main(?) overlook that offers a great view of the area. Make sure to bring water AND bug spray. I had some cutter but the chiggers STILL devoured me. Very little traffic for a Monday. I only saw 5 people on the trail and I spent 2 hours on it. No heavy waterfall action, but I reckon it had not rained in several days. I would hike this again but next time I will wear hiking pants. The trail doesn't have a bar, but there is one down the road a couple of miles. Unfortunately it was closed on Monday. I did find one about 7 miles or so on the Highway 3 called the Duck Inn which was basically in the middle of nowhere. I earned my beers on the LGC trail. Enjoy

We found the path to be completely unmarked, and hard to navigate. If you're a fan of making your own trail, go for it! But it wasn't much fun with our dog.

Excellent place to go hiking and get away from everything
