Super easy walking for all ages. Find a trail to add to the difficulty. Went with a friend for a guided tour, but guide never showed. For locals, not a big deal. You make do. For others who travels long distances, they were disappointed.

Regardless, gorgeous. Fun. Must do and see! Kids love it!

Great little hike! The trees were amazing! Stroller friendly for first half of loop, so you can easily do an out and back with a stroller.

We stayed off the main trail and took the canopy trail - lost trail - sun trail to dipsea trail. We ended up missing the turn to lost trail the first go around and ended back up on the main trail. We went back up the Fern Creek trail and found our missed turnoff. Was a good workout with the stairs. Beautiful scenery but no wildlife and no breeze that day.
