We took a casual stroll that turned into such a beautiful hike, down the mountain and along the most scenic river with over hanging trees. It required some maneuvering but each little turn just got me excited for the next landscape. I would definitely recommend a any of the hikes on offer.

The view from above is breath-taking. The trail is well maintained but the slippery ground made it a bit difficult to move.

Stunning views of the largest green canyon in the... More
