Hiking at Saint Peters Village

Exploring the main street is just one of the activities to enjoy in the area. Running along the main road behind the shops, is a creek. It’s a unique area because of the amount of rocks which create small, narrow cascades. There is a trail along the creek, that often results in hopping rocks and dodging pools of water.

The creek is a great place to explore or just sit on a rock and enjoy the sound of the water and the scenery. There are areas where the cascades are shallow and flowing between rocks. In other places, larger pools form.
