What an amazing 10 mike hike. We didn’t see one other person the entire time. This hike is difficult but well worth it!! Lots of shade. Bring water and a camera.

Did the trail from the village centre/golf course (ALL up hill). It starts off paved for about 2 miles then you walk off into a mostly canopied trail; moderate difficulty. Top 3 miles lots of muddy ground. Take your water at least 2 litres (camelback)....More
