Just visiting for a wedding, and it is a great place to experience. Catered food, cozy, small town. Just a wonderful experience.

Expected to see more lions on this hike, all things considered it was still a beautiful hike. When reaching the summit the view was incredible. My kids absolutely loved the hike, it was not too hard, not too easy.
