Great trail. Recommend doing the trail clockwise. Great for dogs.

Recommend taking the trail clockwise to get the uphills out of the way when you are fresh. Since there was snow on the ground there were times it was difficult to see the trail- but was understandable with the weather. Overall a great trail for a run/hike, I plan on going back!

Trail was nice but didn't get to complete it do to a tree failure that took out the bridge - but it was interesting to see the force that a fallen tree can have on a man-made structure. Will need to go back and complete this trail sometime

The first part of the trail is super-easy unless you decide to climb on some of the gorgeous bluffs and rock formations along the trail, an act explicitly and strictly forbidden by the signs. Therefore, we did not touch the bluff with the cave, where the signs were, but we did ascend a very small offshoot in front of one of the formations to find the perfect spot for an ambush, should one ever seek to become a bandit. The last formation before the washed-out bridge was covered with a gaggle of ten children, so we slid past that one as quickly as possible.

If you're looking to avoid hills, however, you should definitely turn back at the site of the ex-bridge or face immediate disappointment. The ascent begins immediately after; while not overwhelming, it was certainly strenuous enough to make this old woman pant a bit.

I can't comment much on the rest of the scenery at this time, because it was late dusk while we finished the trail and the light was dim. What we could see was interesting enough for us to mark this hike for a return trip so that we could get some decent pictures.

All in all, a very nice hike, and more enjoyable than I would usually expect from a paved trail.

Fun trail to take your dog on. Pretty scenery, beautiful creek, the lime kiln was impressive.
