Easy fun trail, out of the way, a rock climbing and bouldering paradise. High personnel traffic

Great place to hike and really beautiful too... But to avoid a lot of people you need to get there early. Dogs allowed, but need to be on a leash. Seems like we were the only ones that enforced that rule, which was really frustrating.

Beautiful hike along the river. The rock formations are beautiful! The trail is well maintained. Nice parking lot at the trailhead. Dogs welcome. Enjoy!

Really fun trail. We did a mile in and back as a storm caught us off guard but it was perfect anyway and the dog loved it.

My daughter and I did the east fork river at the Hiway 4 location. We hiked in about a mile and half so it was about 3 mile round trip. This was on about 6-7 ft snow on and over the river and is one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. We had a light snow at times and it was just a beautiful day with the cliffs in the backgrounds and no other snowshoers on the trail .

Fun trip. You can actually pick this trail up in a few spots. I'd suggest popping in to the Walatowa visitor center on HWY 4 if you are unfamiliar with the trail and picking up the free trail map. This trail is at a higher elevation, so it is nice when the weather is hot in lower elevations.
