Had an awesome time hiking. Weather was fantastic. Great time with friends and the park staff very personal.
Will most definitely go again.
the loop part of the trail is closed right notr. beautiful views! it was a bit hot and there was some shade on the trail but we found ourselves wishing there was a bit more. we'd rate this as between easy and moderate as far as difficulty as there we're a few spots that might be a bit scary for kids or those who fear nights.
Nice scenic overlook. Easy out & back.
A pretty easy trail with a few nice views of the river. The main route that is mapped has you walking along the main road for the way back which does provide some decent views from the many turnouts you'll walk past.
fun place. weird parking set up. you park on the road walk over to the Ranger Station and pay. walk back to your car to put receipt on window. Then you can get on your way.
Easy but nice swimming hole at the bottom!
Beautiful trail along the river besides the rattlesnake I loved it!
Good hike. Frequent bikers.
Most definitely one of my favorite trails to walk. Aside from the 10$ parking fee that is. A nice little workout but still can include the family. Bring plenty of water. Will be in the sun.
Pretty easy trail. Walked part of it with my mom. Watch out for mountain bikers!
Awesome little trail , me and my 8 month pregos wife did the hike!!
Clean and well groomed trail. Nice climbs and deserts. Beautiful scenery...hard to beat this trail.
We got confused where the trail head started but had our dog off leash and found some great areas in the river to dive into.
Hiked this in August very nice hike great views and shaded for most of the way. You follow the river for most of the way with a very steep drop off. I would not recommend this trail for children or dogs on leash. There was a constant flow of Mt. bikers going East to West (downhill) on the trail and they go pretty fast. There are a lot of areas where there isn't very much room off the trail to allow bikers passage. This isn't a trail to get lost in reverie or to listen to streaming books. You need to pay attention to the sound of bikes. I think in the Winter/Fall it would have been a more peaceful hike but in the dry sunny weather of Auburn Summer this is a very popular biker route.
Good hike... Great views... Just watch out for the downhill bikers if you're with kids.
wear your safety gear if you are out there mountainbiking, my buddy almost died up there, fell off a cliff fifteen feet off, luckily a tree saved him
