Nice scenery. Inclines aren't too bad. Saw 4 other people over a period of 3 hours on a weekday. Bring your hammock/tree straps and have a quiet picnic by the creek.

Decent trail. some grade changes along the way. watch for roots and rocks and fallen trees. Seen plenty of wild life along the way. my 7 year old had no problems here. Nice cool and shaded.

Nice trail. easy to navigate. great opportunity to take nice pics from the damn. also great place to start the beaver lake trail.

so pretty and great for kids
