First overnight trip for my 11 year old. Choose this because of the easy grade, although the 3.5 miles to be able to camp was a bit far for his first time I think. Had a nice time though, and the creek water felt great on the way back under hot sun. Didn’t see any critters.

Awesome for kids! My toddler had a blast looking at birds, bugs, pinecones, and throwing rocks into the river. Easy gravel/dirt trail. Lots of shade. Minimal foot traffic on a weekend morning. The river is beautiful!

Always enjoy the Rattlesnake.

Beautiful easy hiking trail along the river.

Did this trail with my husband and 8 year old son. It took us a couple of hours and was pretty easy. We took a detour trail down the middle and the rejoined the trail described here. While it was a little longer it was beautiful and worth doing.

Nice scenery but it needs more shade

Awesome.

Fun short beginner trail. Brought 3 kids and a new puppy and all did very well.

Watch for off leash dogs! while biking Saturday 7/28 i was knocked off my bike by a dog off leash (ran into my front wheel). Stitches and an afternoon in the clinic, I'll call 911 next time.

Nice. Quick hike. But beware of no shade.

Nice view of the river with a few outlets to swim. We found the tiny waterfall at the beginning of our hike which was why we picked this trail and was a little disappointed. But the swim made it all worth the walk.

Cool place but too many people a lot of the time. Still enjoyable but don't expect privacy during popular times of the year.

Good for running and biking as the path is wide and flat gravel. However I find it overly populated, lots of litter and human activity, and somewhat of a boring trail. The nice thing is it's so close to town. Otherwise there are better local trails IMO.

A fantastic trail for beginner to intermediate mountain bikers. Wide trails, steady incline, plenty of shade and plenty of places to relax and enjoy the scenery. Very dog friendly as well if you want to ride with your pups. Both trail runs and cyclists would appreciate.

The trail (going counter-clockwise) was very quiet and peaceful. Even though it was 90 degrees when we started out, it was comfortable in the shade. There are basically no trail markings so it is easy to stray. Although there were a few miles of trail through a pretty but not particularly interesting forest, much of the trail is scenic and varied. A vigorous hike but I would have rated it as moderate. Only the length might have someone thinking it is hard. The climb covers about four and a half miles but is very steady - maybe a 7 degree slope - and on even track.

I did this hike a ton as a kid. Great easy kid friendly hike along a creek the whole way. Multiple nice hot springs at the end.

Easy hike for kids, pretty scenery. A LOT of mosquitoes right now

Beautiful, easy trail. Great for dogs! If you come to a confusing intersection with other trails, just follow the signs for trail 9.0 and look for the little recreation area logo on the tree.

If you go right along the Sam Braxton turn uphill on the 9.0 trail and then follow the GPS when you get to the loop. Really nice hike. Great vistas.

Nice short walk but the mosquitoes were terrible, had to run the last half of the trail to escape them

Nice hike in town for a little exercise. Not much too it otherwise.

Easy, pretty hike up. Nice warm pools of water!

Good to go, all clear! The river trail is clear, although it’s cut about 2 feet back from the flood, which makes it interesting. A little saturated still towards the end, but good! At the big puddle the trail is clear to the left and then you can wade through the small stream after that or you can take the tall grass trail to the right, which I did. The rest of the way is clear. Remember Bug spray!! Not even a spot of mud on my dogs feet!

Fun little hike. I am guessing this is rated moderate for the uphill portion. The old cabin was cool. Definitely watch out for mountain bikes- there were way more bikers than hikers on the trail today. Some wildflowers. Very pretty.

It was a great trail , But it’s very flooded right now . We had to walk around on higher ground several places !!! It has a great view !Nice, easy , Sunday stroll !!!

Great hike! Portions of the trail were flooded, but that is to be expected this time of the year. Mosquitos were beginning to bite around the water. Had a great time with family on this one!
