Great place to visit with adventurous kids and dogs!! Be mindful that it’s slippy and dont over do the climbing! I am still achey from a spectacular slip! But it was well worth it. Kids had a ball

The best walk/hike in the neighborhood! Difficulty: moderate A hidden treasure path with stepping stones and light climbing. The total path took us an hour as untrained tourists.
