Great hike with little traffic. Went May 17th, the trail was mainly great, some slightly muddy spots. Once at the peak with the bench and great view, there was still loads of snow at waist level. I wasn't properly equipped for it so turned around at that point.

Easy and fair hike in the wood. Track well identified, muddy.

This was actually a really great hike. We originally thought it was Dyson Falls but this was better! You go up hill from the parking lot on an equestrian trail, super easy and kids could do it. A trail into the woods is marked with a red diamond but it was muddy and offered only sneak peaks on the river we would have missed otherwise. And joins back with the main path after about a km anyways. Incredible mountain views. Watch for opportunities to veer off the trail and get down to the water. There is a nice spread water fall just before you get to the bridge. Beyond the bridge (about 3km in) there is a bit of a rocky scramble up, some creek crossing (bring sandals!) and eventually after 5.5km we came to yet another creek/canyon. We opted not to go any further. If you have kids I would recommend stopping at the bridge and then heading back. Views were beautiful and the trail was virtually deserted on a sunny Saturday.
