Description

In the beginning of this trail, there is a nice view of the canyon. Most of the trail is alongside of the mountain and second half is mostly in between trees. The last section of the trail involves climbing rocks! You can find a way down to the caves in between the rocks! Overall, this trail has nice views and the chance to explore some caves and have some fun while climbing on the rocks.

Note that while dogs are allowed on the trail, they may not be able to keep up in the last section of the hike as the rocks are too big for them to climb. No dogs allowed past the Grotto.
