Views are amazing, creeks are pretty cool for exploring as well. Great walking and hiking - I do not recommend the highest points of the trail for small children,

Come prepared for a beautiful climb. Bring water and experience seeing birds, cows and reaching the top. There are 2 ways to get to trailheads. One climb is steeper and scenery prettier. A must do for locals.
