Join us for a family-friendly hike to the so-called council caves. (It’s a large rock formation.) It’s about two miles round trip and we’ll stop along the way to find salamanders. Feel free to come for as long as you like. Packing a lunch to eat at the rocks could be nice. The rocks are fun to climb but it will be important to keep a close eye on children. Please feel free to be in touch with any questions!
