Quiet bluff on the the river

When the directions are to go around the road closed sign you know adventure awaits. This remote site is perfect to get away and still be close to town. This is one you can reserve and get the entire site. The owner lived 5 minutes away and is available when you need help. We stayed on the top by the picnic table, fire pit and composting outhouse. There is a great clearing underneath tall trees - complete with firewood and even a couple chairs. The road curls down the hill to arrive next to the root river. Camping is possible here but a 4x4 might be needed - weather dependent. We spent time exploring the groomed trails and enjoying the river. The view of the bluff is wonderful.

We drove over to Quarry Hill Nature Center. An amazing nature center with exhibit styles that I’ve never seen before. You can walk over some and look from above through viewing windows. My dog and I hiked on paved, groomed and dirt trails for an enjoyable day.

This is truly a place to remember!
