There is also limited water in the area so guests are advised to bring their own drinking water.There are lots of wonderful hiking trails in the area which makes this the perfect place for any nature enthusiast who is interested in nature and scenery viewing.There are also lots of delicious berries to pick but some berries can be poisonous so be sure you are sure what type of berry you have picked before attempting to consume it.There are lots of areas that any aspiring photographer must ad to their portfolio. The view from the lookout is spectacular and the surrounding wildlife gives you a sense of peace as well as the photogenic animals but they don't like the flash it will alarm them and they may attack so please be sure to turn off your flash.While enjoying the great outdoors remember to keep the wilderness wild by cleaning up after yourself. It is very important that we keep our National Forests clean because they are some of the last places in the world where nature has a home. National Forests are a place where animals live, trees grow, and people enjoy themselves. Remember to that anything you bring into the Forest needs to be taken back out. Pack it in, pack it out!|
