Hike one of the many trails and see waterfalls and towers built long ago. Fun for couples and for family too. No cost to spend the day exploring!

The Mina Trail is fully cleared and paved, making it a nice hike for the inexperienced or those who don't want anything technically challenging. The paving stones, however, can get very slippery, especially in the rain, so be prepared and wear reasonable hiking shoes. It's...More
