We went all the way down the hill. It was fun. The problem was going back to where we started. The best is the fresh aire. Beautiful nature.

I know a bus line goes there (we saw them all parked on the same block as the entrance) but we didn’t use the public transit while we were there so I️ have no idea how to access it.
