Lovely trail along the scenic river. Has anybody done tubing on this river? Looks like it could be a nice gentle relaxing ride. Somehow we missed the ruins. Will go back in the fall to see the foliage.

Pretty overgrown grassy areas, muddy spots, and must have missed the ruins. Encountered some horse back riders part way. Some nice shady spots when near the river.

Nice trail! A little muddy in some spots but very nice scenic views. Didn't find the ruins on this attempt though. Parking is a little iffy as well.

Nice views of the river and small dam. Easy enough hike but not much parking

This place is awesome. Used the gps coordinates and it took me right there. There is free 5 hour parking. And no fee to walk the trail.

It had rained last night so a few slick places Aside from the very beginning and end there isn't much climbing. The river is stunning. Next time I will bring a picnic for lunch. So many vistas.
