Let me explain what the Gardens are: They are some gardens. Huge numbers of gardens. It’s a pretty big area, actually, full of gardens and sculptures and landscaping and “themed garden arrangements”. Fifty-five acres of this, to be exact.
First, I just want to say that this hike is actually nearly 2 1/2 miles to the springs. It also gains in elevation, so a lot of that is uphill. If you are as physically fit as me, then you will want to die by the time you reach the top – or your endorphins will kick in, and you’ll feel awesome.
