    Beautiful Views, Lots of Trails

    This area is absolutely beautiful. Parking lot, water fountains, and bathrooms are available before you choose any one of several possible trails. Other hikers seemed friendly and there were lots of dogs, all well-behaved. Would absolutely go back! Highly recommend.
