  • Very beautiful in the midst of green. Flowing water falls is so soothing to ears and mind. Must stroll around when you are around.
  • To really sum this up correctly I will say this, just like all of the Yosmemete valley this place is a little piece of heaven. Waterfalls, wood bridges, fast running rivers, wood log crossing, and cascades everywhere. If you want nature to the fullest this is it. Just cant gi wrong with it.
