The main section of the park, with boardwalks and crowds, has better views but it's not what I call hiking. See both.
Tagged because I also need to find some gun-friendly trails.
I have bicycled past that area many times, but have never stopped. I can not remember is it MT bike friendly?
One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.
