Easy walk along the river!

Beyond gorgeous walk, loved seeing the river definitely would recommend this! Got lost the first time around though, you definitely need your map for this one.

Beautiful trail but not very well marked.

Excellent scenery along this sometimes rocky trail. The river portion can become quite sloppy, especially after a rain. The trails are well marked but you have to look for the markings along the yellow and red trails. Great for dogs, not great for small children.

It was my very first time hiking, to me it wasn't that easy but it was definitely enjoyable!!

Caution: as this loop is marked in AllTrails today, it could be broken into a northern and southern loop. The northern loop is great. The southern loop is not actually a loop. If you follow the southern half counter-clockwise the trail will end about 2 miles in. If you continue following the AllTrails marked path from that point you will end on private property (the nearby winery) just before reaching the park's parking lot.

Aside from this problem, the trails are great. A nice bit of exercise for us and our 10 year old boxer who has had two surgeries for torn cruciate ligaments. It challenged him a few times, but he made it through and seemed to have a great time overall.
