Got to get in one hike while on our honeymoon. Once you enter the park area you take some steps down to a beach with crystal clear water. From there you start the trek up the falls all in the water. There are a few pools to splash around in but there is also a lot of people. The crowd however does not take away from the beauty. I imagine there are tons of good hikes like this on the island.

First time I ever intentionally started hiking in the dark. I wouldn't recommend climbing down into hidden valley in the dark it was kind of a pain. Other than that it was a great way to get to hidden valley and awesome weather. The company was alright too :lol:

This is probably the best route to hidden valley I have done so far. A little humid out but it was a great hike with my pops.

loooooooong flat trail. A lot of mountain bikers and a cross country running team out here. Marked the last full trail off of my SoMo trail list.

This morning we managed to walk more on the road to get to the trail than we did on the trail ](*,) I would definitely recommend going in from the pyramid trailhead if you plan on doing this segment. I am guessing it would be close to the same distance but without the road walking. Pretty flat and plain trail but I needed to cross it off my south mountain trail list. Always good hiking with the old tortoise :lol:

First of 2 hikes this morning. This is one of the easier trails at south mountain but was in very good shape. Trying to get all the trails done at south mountain. Started a little before sunrise and we had some amazing views. HAZtraks was being weird on this one ](*,) so we are just using the mileage that has been used before.

Second hike of the morning. This was surprisingly a very good hike. Thought by the distance it would be an easy trail but it turned out to be some good climbing. Saw a good size blacktail rattler on this one that I almost stepped on. Just 3 more south mountain trails to go.

Wet is not the condition I would recommend for your first time up flat iron. It was very slick and visibility was very low at some points. My dad let me lead for some of this trail that I had never been on before :lol: other than those few complaints the views at the top were absolutely amazing and this trail is a very good one. Finally crossed a hike off of my wish list.
