Bird and Hike does a nice little blurb about this section of the park AND gives directions too!
Hike Time: A leisurely climb up some stairs and a short walk around a fantastic rock formation.
Distance: There really is no distance. It’s more of a stretch your legs kind of walk.
Elevation Difference: 84 Stairs
Fitness Factor: Run up and down the stairs a million times and you’ll get some cardio done!
Walking around in the sand WILL get your heart rate rockin’ and rollin’.
Difficulty: Easy-ish- if you can do stairs.
No Handicap Access on this trail.
Dogs on leashes
Bring: LOTS of water (and I’m NOT kidding), a snack to enjoy in the picnic area or on a rock somewhere. Dress for the weather! Wear SUNSCREEN!
I visited V of F twice this past December and had 2 Fantastic Co-Hosts with me at 2 separate times!
I am NOT a fan of stairs. If you have paid attention to ANY of my other posts- you’d know that is an ABSOLUTE FACT. I WILL cuss them out when I see them and write about it AND I will use the F word- many times- to describe them. Nope- not a fan.
We’ll get back to the art in a second…check out Co-Host #1. My Dad is 83 and made it 1/2 way up the stairs. Nice Job! If you’re wondering about Co-Host #2…Caiden made it up the stairs but was totally freaked out because it was windy up there so he bailed- that’s why he’s making a weird face in the picture above.
Great View from the TOP
Caiden and I explored for a bit. He found a huge dune and decided that it was a good idea to climb up it and then attempt to ski down it.
This is a fun spot to play around in for awhile and this post was a terrific way to introduce my Dad to all who read my blog. I encourage EVERYONE- no matter your age or shape- to get out there and get MOVING. When visiting V of F get out of the car and walk a little if you can. Hop off your Motorcycle for a minute and partake in a short hike. Grab some nature by the TOOKUS!
