Scenic trail that travels next to the Pine River. The trail is pretty well marked and cleared of debris. Along the way you will travel through thickets, old forests and bluffs over looking the river. Keep an out for wildlife too.
Beautiful trail with lovely views of the Pine River. This trail has a variety of landscape to keep the trail interesting. Not too difficult for kids (ages 7 and 8), and dog friendly!
Parts of the trail were difficult to follow, though most of the trail was well marked. We briefly lost the trail twice near where the trail crosses or follows two tracks and ORV trails. Be aware of dirt bikes and 4-wheelers in these areas. Also, an approximately 10 foot section of the east side of the trail had eroded and slid into the river, but there was plenty of room to move away from the edge of the bluff to avoid the drop off. A bathroom around the 2 mile mark is a plus for the children.
All around a fun, beautiful hike for the family.
Very nice trail, however, study the map (at trailhead) before heading out. Following the blue markers, we somehow turned around prematurely, this missing half the trail. In spite of that, the views were very pretty and we really enjoyed the trail. Moderate climb at beginning (and end) of trail.
I've camped here since I was a child. It will forever be one of my favorite places in the world. Don't be scared when you hear the bobcats scream in the night.
