I liked this trail. It's good if you just want to get out for a short walk and see nature. I went during February and it was lovely, still snow covered, but it was the perfect temperature!

This trail is accessible year round and we actually like it better in the winter. ... less ppl and not scorching hot! Plus you see a lot of deer this time of year.

Super awesome ! It's not complicated to get to and it's relatively a short hike.

Nicely signed trail that explains the geology of the area and why the creek is warm all year round. if you want to go for a longer hike you can cross the walking bridge below the parking lot and walk up the river on dirt road. This road intersects the gravel road after a mile or so which you can use to walk back to your car.

My wife and I went all the way up to the end of the trail and it took about an hour to an hour and a half. Amazing views from the top.
