Hiking Trails Disclaimer

Hiking trails and driving to trailheads entails certain potential dangers. We describe how to get to the trail and how to stay on the trail. However, you need to be prepared for anything and everything that nature and people can do to you. You bear responsibility for your actions and their consequences, not us. That said, prepare well and then get out there and explore and enjoy!
