I absolutely loved it here. Clear, clean, drinkable, sweet, spring water! My kids swam here and loved it. It was hard finding the marked trail, but there is one. You can get lost here so be careful, but follow the water and you should be fine. You can kayak here as well as camp and depending on where you are, fishing is also an option. Make sure to go up the mountain on a full tank. Nearest gas station is a 15 min drive away depending on what side of the mountain you are on. The view is beautiful and so serene.

Great trail for any hiker. Short trail with beautiful views.

Beautiful however the park has closed down a large section of it temporarily to perform repairs on a bridge so you can't backpack the entire trail. Very disappointed since I called ahead of time to ensure that the trail was in good condition and open. Lots of ticks. Get some spray!

Great area to see some of the beautiful scenery along the river. Rocks and boulders create areas along the river where you can walk out and sit at rivers edge and enjoy the water.

It's a great place to feel peace and quiet, in a way rarely experienced on this earth. There's a helpful link here for those who want to learn more!

Well maintained trail with nice camping spots. I hiked a little while then took a swim back near trailhead. I visited The visitor center where their was very helpful and friendly staff! Watch out for slippery rocks when in the water!!!
