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!!!
