  • Trail is washed out badly and is a lot more difficult than the brouchers tell you. Not too long of a hike but a challenging scramble over the dry Creek bed.
  • Good family hike from here. Beginning is less scenic on account of the various mineral processing facilities nearby.
  • Fun place, wear some good support shoes or mountain climbing shoes
  • Grotto Pond is stocked with trout. It is super small but I caught a trout so it wasn't that bad
  • Amazing trails.
