Lytle Creek was a great activity for our family. One where we could still get out and not be around anyone. With the pandemic in full swing, we’ve had to try more isolated activities. While It’s still possible to go out, safe options are getting even harder to find. Lytle Creek is nice because you don’t have to hike far to enjoy nice clear water coming down from the mountain. The water in Lytle Creek is shallow, and we felt safe bringing the girls. But it's still important to note that small river washouts like Lytle Creek can quickly turn into fast-flowing rivers from raining weather further up the mountains. So it's best to check the weather before you ever venture into a riverbed.Please be sure to LIKE & Subscribe since Youtube's Algorithm hates short videos! It'll help us a lot.
