The trail is not very well marked. Not near the river at all, in fact it leads away from the river. Some forks seemed confusing. We ran into a grumpy rattle snake who was ready for a fight. You can however access the river from the parking lot, which was a nice view. And we did see three wild horses walking by the river.
Walked this trail yesterday. Beautiful, green, easy loop. But beware, we encountered 2 rattlesnakes on the trail. One was really grumpy; coiled up and ready to strike.
The trail was very overgrown. It wasn't close to the river, and the trail wasn't clearly marked for the first half. We didn't see any wild horses. That being said, the trees were very pretty.
It wasn't very close to the river at all, and you couldn't see it for most of the trail.
Too over grown, there is a bee hive somewhere close because there was bees everywhere. Very flat if you like that
Very easy trail. Not a lot of foot traffic.
Reviews mentioned a lot of trash so we brought bags, were pleasantly surprised with the lack- we only managed to find a bit. Easy stroll, not completely accessible, but the trail itself is do-able if you have big wheels and strong muscles.
