Difficulty: 3stars  Solitude: 5stars
Miles Hiked: 3.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 2 hours


We walked down the canyon until we could see the climbing wall.  It was really pretty here, but we couldn't tell if there was a trail that would wind down to the river so we decided to hike the bluff.  A really beautiful hike here though in some areas it was hard to determine where to cross the little ravine.  However, we figured it out and went all the way to the beach which is really nice.  The river is gorgeous and our dogs really liked swimming for a bit.  Great place to hike with dogs as there are several places they can cool off and drink water.  Along the bluff hike there are several interesting geological sites.  We saw some small caves.  Next time, I'd like to hike one of the double diamond trails for the mountain bikers.  The topo map drawn next to the difficulty levels seems to offer really varied ups and downs.  Definitely plan on hiking more here.  If anyone hikes down to the climbing wall, please comment on the trails that go off from there.
