We didn't really stick to the trail, we explored a bit. Recent rain mad for a messy , muddy hike. Views were nice and it felt great to be outside again! ☀️

This was my second trail hike and I enjoyed it. Being new to hiking and I am 52 the up hill was slow going for me but the view was amazing.

It was moderate. Easy on the way down, there was lots of spots to stop & swim, not too fast of a current. Pet & family friendly. Super fun hike, but pretty hard to get back up.

The trail to the confluence was beautiful with waterfalls and lookout points. Mostly shaded at 10am it was easy and pleasant to make the DOWNHILL decent to the water where we spent about an hour playing in the water. The hike back around mile 1.8 got difficult going back UP!!

Luckily, this part of the trail is shaded so there was plenty opportunity to rest (catch breathe) before moving on.

If you're looking for something without all the climbing, park at the confluence and head towards Robie Point and then back.

Decent trail, coming back up was probably the hardest part with all the hills. Not too much shade, and bring lots of water. Your gonna need it.
