First time to hike the Confluence Trail and will come back only will start earlier than 10 a.m. on a hot summer day due to minimal shade. Beautiful vistas of river for for first half and only had to step aside for 3 mountain bikers. Gradual elevation, trail well marked.

This was my first time hiking in Auburn State Recreation Area. This hike offered enough scenery and wildlife to entertain my family. Friendly bike riders and trail runners. Will totally do it again.

Great, easy hike with kids. Toward the end there is a little trail down to the river and a fantastic swimming hole where the current is minimal, crossing the river is easy (even for my 8 year old) and there's a big rock on the other side that's easy to climb and perfect for jumping off of.

Definitely go early during the summer. Extremely warm. Look out for rattlesnakes on trail.

Setting and river views are amazing. BUT the trail has many narrow areas with steep drops to the river on one side. Also, there are many bikers on this trail that make the walk a lot less pleasant. Actually, it was anxiety filled - we watched a biker fall and nearly end up in the canyon. I'd advice you pick a different trail - one which does not allow bikes or one wide enough to accommodate both. This one did not.

Easy day hike. small falls & the river. Nice trail for horses. Easy access to trail. Not a lot of shade on this trail so may not want to be out in the afternoon on a hot day.
