This is not for beginners unless you have someone with you that can assist with some of the areas that require long or agile legs to maneuver some of the terrain. Some of the trail is easy and a few parts are a bit challenging....More

There are no dogs allowed on this hike and is a great hike for kids. The trail may be too steep for kids under 5 or 6 on a couple parts.
