The hikes are enjoyable and not difficult. The water is clean, clear and fresh, a colour so green/blue it has to be touched. Bring a camera for bird and deer sightenings.

Good hike for the family. We have even done it with a bigger style stroller. It is a bit of a climb but easy wide path. Very popular so many people are on it. Great scenery once you reach the top of the hike. Caution...More

I’m not sure why you would want to disturb the natural beauty and taint the water with your own bacteria .. it’s a place for everyone to enjoy . Be respectful of nature , go find yourself a pool. ...
