Couple’s Hike

To facilitate more couple’s fun and activity, we will hike a medium to easy trail in the mountains.  The length of the trail is around 2.5 miles and offers picturesque views of waterfalls.  Optional Tubing: The trail also has two sections where water travels down from one area to another as a natural lazy river.  One section is for adults and swimmers, since the ride can get wild and bouncy.  The second section is appropriate for all ages with a steady, easy flow down to where we will start.  To rent a tube, the cost is $5 and can be used the duration of our hiking trip.  Travel to our hiking destination is covered in the cost to attend the retreat.
