Miles Hiked: 5.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 2 hours


Wow, what a hike!  The beginning of the hike was an amazing decline down to the creek.  At the "T" we went to the right, which is the more rugged of the two sides.  We walked along the beautiful creek & saw and heard many waterfalls.  It was beautiful.  We eventually crossed the creek and proceeded up river.  It eventually became to inclined and was a bit too dangerous to continue, so we went back down stream where the hike was flatter.  We ran into a few bikers and a couple people with dogs, but overall, there were not many people.  It was also a Monday morning, so it's probably much busier on the weekend.  Going back up the steep incline in the end was very tough after a long hike.
