Great river. Lots of caves and springs to explore on the upper section above Alley Spring. Great swimming and fishing for the whole family.

Great little trail.

Didn’t do the overlook trail yet but there’s a smaller trail you can take just around the spring. Going back!! Stunningly beautiful place. Very well maintained and preserved.

Beautiful area. The flood in April 2017 knocked out the bridge, turning this short trail into a longer one (see recording). There are lots of cool little caves to see and the hike now takes you along the creek and returns you to the parking lot. Very easy walk.

Nice hike, beautiful scenery...

Love this River. Wintertime can be AWESOME !!!
But just sitting on any of these gravel bars is all I need.

Beautiful blue water natural running spring around 81,000,000 gallons per day flows out of that spring. There's an old red Mill which was built in 1893

Beautiful, easy walk around Alley Spring and mill. Stop in and tour the mill while you're there!

We really enjoyed our trip. Fairly easy hike. It had some switchbacks at the beginning that were a little tough being out of shape. There are copperheads so be careful and stay on the trail. I would hike there again.
