Charley's Loop is off the bucket list. easy with just enough rock and up hill to keep it interesting. Start at left of picnic area behind Gazebo. (I think you can call it a Gazebo, all sides open with roof , filled with picnic tables.

Good day to be out. Usually there’s way too many people but a cloudy cold day made it nice.

Mostly rock climbing with some flat trails. Rock climbing required in and out. Must keep small children close (within arms reach).

We had a great visit. The reservation has several picnic areas, a playground and then of course the Chasm. Highly recommend sneakers. I would rate it as moderate, because climbing up and down the rocks can be tricky ( I was carrying my 2 yr old). Definitely recommend!!
