We went close to the area below the dam to see the water being released. While the river was pretty, with beautiful cypress trees and clear water, there was a HORRIBLE stench. We left because of it. The next day we read that some dogs had gotten poisoned and one died playing in the river near that location. There was supposed to be a sign warning people not to go in the water because of a potential algae bloom - which is what we smelled. We saw NO SIGN, so they did a FEEBLE attempt to warn people. Here is an article about it. https://www.ksat.com/news/dog-owners-believe-river-contamination-may-have-caused-dogs-sicknesses

Nice views, child and dog friendly. We stopped and waded in the river, somewhat secluded, lots of shade.

Great trail with topography, shade and wonderful views!

Awesome sights and love hiking by the river. When it's hot out, you can just stop, stick your feet in the water, then keep hiking. Beautiful trail.

Good trail, very scenic and not too difficult or long

Beautiful easy trail.

Great little trail! You can hear families playing in the water so it's not the quietest hike. It's a great hike for beginners. Be sure to use the restroom before and bring water, as there are no facilites around.
