Looking for easy hike but not too short? This is the one. Relatively flat trail compared to others in mountains, with ups and dips here and there. Nice spot down the river to chill at the end of trail, and it was interesting to see the kiln and some bit of area’s history.

interesting and fun

Great spot for trail running. I run to the kiln and turn around and it's about 4.6 miles.

was great hike easy enough my smaller kids could do it. and beautiful to eat down by water.

Had been wanting to do this trail for a while! It was a long muggy walk but worth it and the end! The kiln was pretty rad and when we got go the beach I stripped down and had a lovely swim with my pup in the perfect swimming hole right off the sandy beach! Only saw 3 other groups on my way out! Really enjoyed today! :)

Well maintained trail for running, recently trimmed, with quite a few spots that demand either walking or your best, careful stutter-step. Over 1000ft elevation gain to the Kiln then back making for what I consider to be more of a Moderate difficulty for running. Great to have something to aim for - the Kiln - which comes out of nowhere along the trail as it follows an old railroad line I'll estimate as about 150-200ft above the Stilly.

The flies were really bad especially at the lime kiln (it's like they know you are going to stop there) but a great hike overall. We had two beginners and some kiddos who did to the beach and back (8.5 miles round trip)

What an amazing time! Only thing I wish it offered was a spot to go wade in the river and the let pups cool down, But the trail has a lot to offer!
