Neat neat trail for families and kids a little of everything to keep them entertained. The old railway stone picked tunnel was AWESOME interesting definitely make sure you check that out suspension bridges are always fun and the summit cool too. I really liked the variety of this trail and trail system. Great smell the forest and meander type trail hike.

Very close to my house so i walk a few times a week, peaceful, quartz mine, pinnicle, and loop.

I loved this trail! It is very family/dog friendly. Pretty flat but also gradual incline on beds of pine needles! Beautiful. The summit was a bit more rocky and steep but a great view.

really enjoyed the hike. did the bee loop which is the round white trail

Walked the left loop away from the water and was disappointed by the noise of the road for the first half of the loop. However was very pleased by the loop along the water. It was a delight to hear the sounds of the water flowing over the rocks. The trail down was a switchback and gets you eventually down to the water. As you continue you can detour to walk on or across two bridges.

I had a great time with this trail. Lots to see, not too difficult but still got a good deal of exercise.

Beautiful leisure hike. Lots of areas off the river to relax for the day with the family. Saw lots of people floating. Some advice.. Bring water shoes to wear in the river!

Tough. We took the steeper shorter trail up and it was not easy. Beautiful views.

The kids and I really enjoyed this trail. We are looking forward to going back in the spring when everything is green again. Great walk/hike. Took us about an hour (including stopping to look around at times) to do the full loop. We may have been able to do it faster, but we were enjoying looking around and exploring a bit.

Great hike, the green circle got a lil rough for the kids when the terrain got a bit tough but we managed. We thought out of the box and crossed the river to pick up the yellow circle/blue square trail to go to the tunnel which is amazing and a great landmark/photo op. (If you stay on the green circle you won't see the tunnel). Stayed on the yellow circle back to the parking lot it was much easier for the kids it's basically a dirt road. Will def be back!

Beautiful easy hike, loved the tunnel and took our shoes off to cross through the river which was a lot of fun and a great way to cool off. Went on the weekend, parking lot was busy but found a parking spot. We saw baby bobcats on the way there!
