Wonderful trail to hike if a bit muddy and slippery in some spots. However, be careful about parking. Three cars, including mine, were broken into.

Hiked this trail today. A little mud, but very easy to navigate. Had a blast.

we loved this hike. the history and relics are very cool to explore.

it was an amazing hike for my boyfriend and I but be cautious of wildlife. We saw a mountain lion that came about 5yards away from us.

Very easy hike. A bit on the muddy side in November. The lake at the end is a far better destination than the kiln itself.

Did this hike for the first time today with my almost 5 year old. We did the whole thing (river loop and all) and it was great. Easy hike with well maintained roads. Perfect for children/families. And the kiln was pretty cool to check out!

My dog and I went for a short hike today. Trail was clean with plenty of parking. Great easy hike. We only went 1.7 miles out. Highly recommend for novices like me.

parking wasn't bad. the trail was fairly easy at the beginning. starts to get a slight incline a bit later but overall was an easy and relaxing hike. The way back is worse though because its mostly up hill. Seeing the old kiln is cool and if you hike past that for a mile is the river which you can eventually go down to if you want. The path to the river is a bit narrow so be careful. I'd go again. I went during the week in the early afternoon.

Beautiful woodsy and easy hike! I loved the river spot! Sometimes you just don't want to climb 3,000 feet!

nice walk to the old kiln and nice good cold swim at the river! but warmer than lake 22

super easy. great with the kids

Great hike! Brought a couple of dogs and they loved it. Especially the extra hike to the water. It was pretty easy overall. Some parts are pretty narrow and we got eaten by mosquitos. But it was very pretty!

Nice hike for kiddos, peaceful and relaxing with a cool little river loop at the end of trail. Historical context of hike added bonus.

Great for kids! My four year old walked (almost) the entire way. The kiln and old logging equipment were super interesting. The trail is well maintained and not difficult at all.

Great hike, good for kids too. A bit of a hill towards the end. A nice scenic trail!

Was a great hike even in the rain. There's a good mix of incline/flat/decline to keep it on the easy side. I would like to go back in the sun and spend more time at the river.

Well groomed trail. If you have a dog that likes water the payoff is at the end of the trail with a nice river access area. The current was not very strong and my dog was able to swim. Go early though, this trail gets packed.

I did this hike with my dog and it was nice. The views change from ferns and moss, to a blackberry patch, easy gravel trail, then a dirt trail with some rocks, logs, and a bit of water over the trail in some areas. The kiln and remnants were cool. You travel above the river the last part of the hike, and can hear it but can’t easily reach it. I’m a novice hiker and wore my tennis shoes and did fine. Recommend doing during the week. Looks like parking is a problem on weekends. Lots of no parking signs before the parking lot.

very nice, easy, well maintained, it's good for daily exercise and learn some historic as you go.

Just did this hike yesterday with a friend. Easy on the way down and slightly moderate (at times) on the return.

The kiln was neat to look at but hardly anything has been left behind. It’s 100+ years old after all. Still quite a feat that it was ever constructed.

The river was beautifully green (assuming from the lime stone?) and there were plenty of spots to sit and enjoy.

Parking was easy at 8:30 on a Sunday morning.

An easy hike, with beautiful scenery and interesting finds. The trail itself is well maintained and fun to learn some of the history as you go.

This is the perfect intro hike for people trying to get back into shape (like myself!). While there were easy parts, the few hills and total distance kept it at a good challenge.

This was a nice hike. It’s a quiet trill with some interesting things to see on the way. People are nice throughout the trill. Hopefully I will be back.

Heads up to the fellow chubbies who are just rolling off the couch looking for an easy first hike to get you back in the game.....this hike is not for you. This will be a good one after about 2 weeks of “easy” hikes. It has a good up hill climb. I say this as a chubby girl so you fit athletic people can just skip right over this review. It is beautiful and relaxing, but it is far from a chubby girls definition of a “easy” hike. Also keep everything out of your car and leave it unlocked so the lazy ass people who don’t want to work for a living and get off by breaking into people’s cars can easily see you have nothing for them.
Go get em chubbies and show them you can do it!!

It was a great hike but our Van along with another car had their windows smashed today. They took a purse that was hidden and then went to the hotel our family was staying at and stole all of their belongings there too. I know it can happen anywhere but just wanted to warn you to not keep valuables in the cars here

Beautiful views of Mother Nature.

The pictures made it look cooler than we thought it was. But it's a nice 3 hour hike if you keep moving.

Great hike. Will get there very early next time to avoid the later hikers going up on the way back. Good trail for easing back into hiking season and training my 6 month old puppy on trail etiquette. (wish more dog owners would do some training).
