My one and only complaint of this trail would be the mosquitoes were absolutely horrible!! Be sure to cake on that bug spray.

Gorgeous and lush green trail! It was extremely overcast and slightly rainy so we thought we wouldn’t need much insect repellent. We were very wrong. The path was very clean and clear. There were a few fallen trees that we had to walk around. We spooked a moose on the bend and she jumped right into the river which was awesome to see. With that being said, be sure to look out for poop on the trail. This trail is appropriately rated easy, and there is a spot at the beginning/end that would be ideal for picnics!
