The kids in my son's grade had a blast! We split into smaller groups for the guided mine tour and then hike to the cemetery for a scavenger hunt!

Was an awesome place to go hiking and exploring and see the old caves that they have open during part of the year.

We love hiking here. There are numerous trails to take from easy to more challenging. If you go during the week there is usually no fee for parking.
