Mountain
“This hike is great in both summer and winter. IN the winter months make sure you have 4 wheel drive or the roads are dry - you can contact us for a road update! Be properly dressed in winter clothes, and in the summer take bear spray. Always tell someone where you are going and when you will be back. The view from the top is incredible! ”

“The coffeehouse at south offers fresh baked treats, salads, paninis, smoothies, milk shakes and kaladi brothers espresso. it's the perfect place to hang out and study or catch up with friends. pick out a board game from their collection or open up your laptop and connect to free wifi while you enjoy a glass of wine. if you don't have time to linger, choose from the conveniently packaged grab and go items. open at 7 am monday-saturday, and 8 am on sunday. The biscuits and gravy are great value and delish!”
