Another blessing by Mother Nature and a must do. This is so worth the short hike to get to it. Wear comfy sneakers and bring water.

Go early for a hike here and you will enjoy it. Do not go past 10am in warm weather as it will be too hot to walk and trek. Feel the stones and their coolness :) It’s a very nice canyon.

unique stone structures; kids will enjoy climbing; baby strollers wont work, btw - kids have to be able to climb by themselves. also, nice and shady for some of the distance. Nice enjoyable hike on a mild day.
