Loved it! A little scary at times but great! Pretty! And not crowded once you get on the right trail

I took my family on this. 4 little kids (age range 2-6) and a husband. We really had the best time just poking around and meandering through the trees. It was a simple, easy walk. We didn't do the whole thing because it got chilly and we were underdressed.
