This is one of the most beautiful trails anywhere. I think it is a close second to the Balanced Rock Trail. It is rocky part of the way but it is beautiful all the way.
I would love to see this trail in June when the Rhododendrons are in bloom. The trail is very rocky in places so wear the right shoes. The trail follows Trough Creek from Copperas Rock to the Suspension Bridge where you can cross and return via Trough Creek Drive for a loop, return the way you came or continue on to the Balanced Rock Trail and others.
