Blakeney Rapids Trail-

This meandering trail has a beautiful and magical feeling. Lots of mossy trunked trees.

There are a few nice foot bridges. Also a nice sunny lookout from the rocks over the rapids.

On a hot summer day it’s fun to climb around on the rocks in the water, but be sure to bring water socks. CLICK HERE–
