This trail is kinda ruff so boots or a stout pair of trail runners are the best way to go. I used trail runners but wished I had boots. The blaze markers are nice and big so you won’t get lost. I went on a week day so there was no one but me on the trail. Sign in sheet is in the park area and is no fee to hike. There’s a really nice but sort of small park with grills and tables, they have paddle rentals but I don’t know there rates. Bathrooms look nice from the outside.
