It paved the whole way so rough on the feet and dogs feet. The river is sometimes in view. Theirs a lot of transients and your pretty isolated because of this I wouldn't recommend walking alone. I had to step over a drunk guy and the person with him was in the bushes. Nice walk with a group.
It's a very short walk. I bring my dogs there a lot it's right by my house. The trees aren't well maintained if it's windy or raining hard I'd stay off it. The moss gets heavy. It's a pretty walk I wouldn't call it a hike.
Difficult to find the path and then when we found it it was fairly overgrown. If you go, don't follow the path in the app. Walk to the river from the parking lot and on the left will be a trailhead sign. The park looks nice for picnics. Also, parking is $4.
