Sturdy shoes, sun protection, and at least 1 liter of water per person strongly recommended.     


Group size is limited. No pets please. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Participants must be able to walk over rocky, uneven ground.  To reduce human impact on the Natural Area, please follow the Leave No Trace principles of outdoor ethics.
