Very disappointed by this trail. Nothing much to see and most of the trail is for horseback riding as well so a lot of waste around. You need to watch your footing the whole time. The only plus is the beautiful river view.

Great Boardwalk hike for the kids even in winter. Warm hot springs run off has lots of small fish

This is our trip to the Cave & Basin National Historic Site since it's latest renovations, we have been here a few times in the past years. The building structure looked a little different, a new face lift, the trail behind looked the same to me, it's an easy walk up and down the wooden stairs and boardwalks.
