Easy hike but the north end just kinda faded away... wasn't sure if I was at the end since the trail narrowed abruptly and became more over grown.

This is an easy walking trail. Well marked, pretty well traveled and popular. Great photo opportunities along the water.

Great easy hike. Very scenic and great picture opportunities. Follows the creek with some ancient rock formations. Awesome experience definitely recommend the hike. Trail is easy and clearly identifiable. I would think it is a great ski or snowshoe trail.
