hiked back about 2 miles. great trail
did about 3 miles in. nice trail. a little hot by noon. Lots of places to go down to the river
This is a great river trail, especially if you aren't looking for a strenuous hike. The trail goes back almost 5 miles (therefore 9-10 roundtrip), before you hit the boundary and the trail leaves the river and heads east to connect with the Rubion trail. Along the 5 mile stretch, there are tons of access points to the river, great for fly fishin'. There are also multiple camps set up for an easy overnighter. If you do this trail, head up at least half way (maybe 2 miles out or so) to Dry Meadows Creek, where it comes in as a spectacular waterfall carving out a large section of the rock. There really isn't an end destination for this one, so just stroll out as far you like, and about-face and return to which you came when you are finished. Pack sunscreen, as most of this hike will be exposed. Don't forget to take you dog on this one too!
Did this trail 2 weeks ago, not that bad but not exactly 4 miles though.
Finally got back out here for a solo trip, and this palace is amazing. if you wanna check it out before you go check out what i saw here https://youtu.be/Mn5WcW10eAg
My family and i kinda did this hike this past Sunday, only did a tiny bit of it because the trail was a bit to dangerous for my kiddos. Best make sure you have strong ankles as well as good shoes. You can watch my you tube video in the description and enjoy the bits we did see.
Just did this trail this weekend and feel in love with it. Took my 12yr old and nephews and they loved it as well...I'd say just to be careful due to how some if the trail is made in the rock. Will do this trail again soon.
