This was one of the most delightful hikes I've ever done. The most peaceful. A few trees and roots but otherwise quite mananagable. Trail is very easy to follow except for a small section at the end. So gorgeous.

Beautiful trail! As others mentioned, a few difficult spots (mud, downed trees, slippery rocks) that requires modest physical capability. 2-3 hours to the end and back at a moderate pace. Overall a great beginner trail.

Great trail. Very muddy in places and slippery shale rock near the end. Bald eagles and lots of birds.

Great trail. One of the best in the valley. first part has some springs; just pick your way around these and the rest is fantastic. Hardwood forests with huge hemlock.
