Hiking

A beautiful ‘meditation’ hike rather than a pump your heart one, unless you want to run it . Flat with birds and other wildlife. Once you cross Harper’s Creek at the end, take a right for a couple of hundred yards for a nice little waterfall and even pools for jumping in if it is spring .

Did the first 2.5 miles out and back for a trail run and it was amazing. The wildlife was great with tons of lizards and hares that ran in front of you down the trail. Weather was perfect but I could see this being very hot during the middle of summer.
