Sabine Canyon is literally a life savior for me. I am able to go there to walk, hike and actually climb a mountain. Not only have I lost quite a bit of weight this winter, but it is a mental health refuge for me too.

We enjoyed Bear Creek hike. Be prepared for a lot of people on this trail as it is quite popular. Start early.
