I love this area! Always have and always will! It's worth visiting. If the weather allows, this is a perfect area to talk a walk.
What a great hiking area. The houses are amazing on this road. If you start at the Cathedral and walk all the way to the river it's about 6 miles one way. I would reccomend starting at the cathedral then the hike is all down hill from there. The governors mansion is on this road.
