Hiked out Blue from Cooper Gristmill to Conifer Trail (Red) to Green back to Blue today with my wife, daughter and lab buster brown. Good workout trail is not marked real well so pay attention. Trail leaf cover at this point so a little slippery on the downside.
The river was very low, which made the waterfall pretty weak, but it was one of the better trails I've ever been on. I will definitely go back, maybe after some good rainfall to see the streams and waterfall more active. Overall a great experience with very nice views.
Very nice hike. Went on a Friday, midday, and saw ONE other person on the trail. Good exercise -- lots of up 'n down. Well marked except for right around the nature center-- had to walk a leg on the road, but the map didn't show that truly. Did the 8 mile lollipop-- thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of diverse terrain and both deciduous and conifer regions.
