Whilst the views are amazing and the trail is nice, there are far too many off leash dogs (it is mean to be an on leash area). Not ideal nor safe to have them chase you or pop out of no where.

Recent rain caused some smaller trees to fall around the path. I cleared the tree in picture but more may fall in the days to come. Creek runs strong through the trail, new ruts are forming!
