  • There is a great variety of trails from wide walking paths to climbing up a 50° slope of pure rock. The views from the cliffs and the castle are amazing. Definitely a great place to go to connect to nature and get outside.
  • Loved the place. Good for picnics with family. Very scenic place. You can take your dogs.
  • Really nice, well maintained trail system. Not sure if rock climbing is allowed, but it seemed like there were markers for vertical routes in one section of cliffs

I am glad I visited this place... dog friendly. 🤗
