5 StarsBeautiful and sereneJuly 26, 2019

Reviewer: Martha Jenkins
Our guide was knowledgeable and very informative. Was disappointed at the lack of wildlife but that's hit or miss. The trails were good and the forest did not disappoint in its beauty. I have many wonderful photos to remember this excursion by. I especially appreciated the drive through town on the way to the hike and the history lessons.

Reviewer: Robert Franceschini
Our guide took us on a short drive into the hiking trail and told us about the sites. On the hike, she was very informative on the trees and wildlife we encountered on the trail. An easy hike that flew by the time we were there.

5 StarsLoved the hike. Plus an extra bonus.July 14, 2019

Reviewer: Steve Sapiro
The hike was great. What can be better than a hike through a National Forest with a knowledgeable guide. Not only did she know all about the flora and fauna but, being a local, she knew all the back stories and legends of the area. It was a nice, pleasant walk through a beautiful area. And as an added bonus the van driver showed us where some bald eagles were hanging out close to the ship. I got some great close ups.
