We walk through the Reserve and it was beautiful! Walking through the valley is easy and cool. WARNING! If the sign says "steep trail ahead" they mean it!
We drove up to the Reserve and then drove in. It is probably a wonderful place to hike, but too cold for us. We just drove through a portion then went on our way.
