A cautionary note for dog owners: your dog MUST BE LEASHED at the beginning/end of this hike. There's a highly territorial Great Pyrenees who lives in one of the adjacent properties. He has been known to attack dogs who unknowingly venture into "his territory" - I've seen it happen on two occasions.

just going to add my points to this well know place. (1) very humid; we saw a small cloud in the cavern (2) really really really big; enough to have a micro climate cloud (3) walk in and take the elevator out; avoid the opposite unless you are in peak health (4) long walks with steep inclination; however, a moist hand rail is available along the path.

So hard does not begin to describe the end of this trail. All is fine while you are near the creeks, then you start the real trek up and it is really up. My son (9), daughter (7), wife and I made it this past Saturday. Weather was perfect. Started just after 9 and finished about 4. Made it all the way to the crash site. I will say the view were not as good as other trails, La Luz or Pino, but there was plenty of shade. Big note watch for the right turn you need to make. IT is marked by other hikers but hard to see. You actually go up out of the creek bed. There is a glove in the tree along with some rock markers. The last half mile before the wreck is a nightmare. But you are so close you are pushed to finish. Walking sticks are highly advised, we did not bring any, but found some along the trail.

Best short hike for a family to have fun and learn a little on the way. Our 4 year old daughter made it the whole way and loved the ladders.
