Hike at Ralph Stover State Park

On Sunday, Frank and I decided it was a great day for a hike! We love hikes for a number of reasons including that they are good for exercise, but also we enjoy the fresh air, element of adventure, and the absolute beauty of nature. We've been on this particular hike several times, but in the past we have only gone as far as a small cave we found and enjoyed sitting in. This time, we decided to find the cave again, but we then continued our hike in the opposite direction and ended up climbing over a barrier to create our own path down a very steep hillside to get to the river at the bottom in the valley at the end of the trails. As we were venturing down this steep hill, we found gorgeous cliffs and rock climbers. I would not recommened jumping over the rail as we did (apparently we were tresspassing! oops!) but I would recommend this hike to anyone!
