At the split, go left to go down to the river follow along the river and then back up the loop along the low ridge. Grave site is near the end. I take my doggy swimming when we get down to the river. Perfect for a 45 min walk in the woods.

Great, well marked trail. A little muddy, but the trail crosses several streams. The quarry seems to be a nice swimming hole!

Enjoyed the steep climb and water along parts of the trail. Great for a day trip! There is also camping close to the trail.

Beautiful river views and an awesome swinging bridge are the highlights. A steep climb will provide all the exercise you need.

Really enjoyed hiking this trail with a friend last weekend. Was pretty well trafficked, but we saw quite a bit of wildlife too. There does seem to be some construction or clearing of some sort happening back off of the Bobbits Hole trail, but overall this is a great trail for being so close to the city.

Nice, challenging walk for a beautiful Sunday. There weren't a lot of people when we got there and even less further out into the hike. Be prepared for some intense hills and some challenging terrain with roots and rocks.

Cold, windy day in April. I hiked roughly twelve miles of trails and loved every minute of it. There were definitely some good hills that will give you an awesome workout. A few trails were plenty busy, while at one point I didn't see anyone for about an hour. I look forward to hiking this one again.
