very easy walk for an expecting mother...so serene and beautiful!

Its a very nice trail. Don't go on long weekends, it's way too crowded but if you get away from the water the crowds thin out.

Great for dogs lots of water views piece of heaven close to the city. Bring a bathing suit and cool off in the creek.

This trail is great, can get kind of crowded if you go too late. The trail follows the river for a nice distance. The mills is awesome. Not too difficult, there are some narrow areas but barely a climb.

We did the Red trail to the white trail for the return trip. It's a great hike.

Great trail along the creek! Beautiful ruins and a moderate hike up and down rocks. We loved it!

The kids and I took the red trail, explored the mill ruins, did the green trail and part of the white trail, with several geocaches along the way. A few small hills but no steep elevation climbs, and lots to see--including snakes!

My current favorite spot as a new hiker. The red trail is beautiful, with many great spots to sit along the river. Not too crowded, and it gets less so as you go along. I took the red trail until the very end and then walked back to the Mill on part of the White Trail which was a very nice downhill for most of the way. The Red Trail is easy up until the mills and then you start to get some choices in how to take it. I stuck along the river as much as I could and went out onto the rocks on occasion, and it was gorgeous.

Parking is very reasonable at 5 dollars for the day. I would even consider a yearly pass for 50.

Loved hiking by the river!! Gorgeous views and so peaceful. You literally forget about everything else going on and focus on the trail. I'll definitely be back to try out some of their other listed trails!
