6. Beams Rock

Take a hike up to Beams Rock to capture all of your nature vibes. Beams is a beginner-level path achievable for everyone. If not for the exercise, do it for the ‘gram. Be sure to look up directions before visiting as reception can be spotty.

Note: Beams Rock is state game property and can not be visited after dark.
