We hiked about half the trail starting from the New Germany Trailhead. It was a great hike and really easy, aside from climbing back up to get back to the trailhead. Lots of stream crossings give you a chance to cool off, and very few crowds on the trail. Good place to take your dog for a hike. Only warning is the stinging nettles that line much of the trail once you get down by the water. Luckily you can wash off in one of the the many stream crossings to relieve the itching.
