Simply an amazing hike!
This one was so gorgeous. Seriously, this is the view from the trailhead parking lot...
And it was only gorgeous, well-maintained trails with cool boulders and cute creeks and every freaking growing thing ever from there on. Plus the view at the top didn't suck also.
The kids all did awesome on this 5 miler, which is the longest we've done in a long while. It was an all day event, but totally fantastic. Everything is blooming and hatching and busy right now so there were lots of distracting things to do and see.
Hoping we'll come back again this summer maybe, as it would appear that there are a couple of small lakes in the area that probably merit some exploration. A+ hiking right here!
