This has been my favorite hike since I was a child. It's just long enough to feel like real exertion and the view at the top is magnificent. I try to go when it's less traveled.

My family and I loved this place. But we only know it by the name of Beaver Creek Nature Area.

Lots of twists and turns. There is never a boring view and you have plenty of choices to make on what path you want to travel.
