- This is self lead hike. While finding MWR staff is the goal, safety and preparedness is each individual hiker's responsibility.
- This trail is not stroller friendly and may be challenging for younger children. Please plan accordingly. Backpack carriers are a great option if travelling with your little.
- Be aware there is a $10 parking fee for non residents on the weekends. Bees are in the area so it is not a good hike for those who are allergic.
