lime kiln hike granite falls

Id known of the Lime Kiln Trail near Granite Falls for a while now but it seemed like one of those overly popular trails that was also overly popular with people who like to break into cars at trailheads I never had any major desire to do it before but this weekend just felt right for it And Im so glad we did hike it
