Great trail, very quiet an peaceful; I didn't see another hiker the whole time. I would agree with the other reviewers that this is more of a "moderate" level trail instead of an "easy" level trail. The path can get really rocky at times--plenty of opportunity to twist an ankle. Also, as the other reviewers have noted, there is no waterfall; the only water you see is the lake from a distance.

Great views.....steep climbs. Trekking poles are a must! Bring plenty of water and plan to make a full day of this trail. This app saved us many times from getting lost. The trail is marked fairly well and there are a few areas you have to walk through high grass and cross several streams. Great hike

Kayaked the first few miles of this river and had a wonderful time several years ago. The short waterfall provided lots of entertainment and we were able to practice some skills in a pretty tame environment. We have attempted to get on this part of the river again each time we are in the area but between the flooding and then such prolonged low water conditions we haven't had any success. [kayaking-yes, "whitewater"-not so much]

For me this was a good trail but I do not think it's difficulty should be called easy due to the amount of climbing terrain and the steepness of the terrain especially for a first time hiker.

please be prepared. We had a camel back with 70 oz of water with a 20 oz bottle and a 16.9 oz bottle between myself and my wife. it wasn't enough. normally I wouldn't need near that amount bit for some reason this trail I needed more. also. check in with the rangers and let them know your going to be on that trail. and let them know when your down.

great trail though

Pretty fun hike that keeps you climbing up and down for most of the trail. Most of the trail is marked; however there seems to be a few places where the previous flood damage has not been repaired or updated to clearly direct you on the trail. This hike will take you 10-11.5 miles to complete the full trail loop (depending on where you park your car or where you camp). For experienced hikers this trail should take you about 5-6 hours and our dog loved it! Bring plenty of water with you!
