$5 entry fee - head to Effie Yeaw nature center parking lot. Well marked trail entrance. Before we even started we saw 2 deer. Some more deer along the way and a fox as we were leaving. Easy hike with nice benches along the way to stop for a snack or just sit quietly. Quick walk over some rocks to the river to watch rafters and kayakers go by and throw some rocks. Great easy family hike or just a nice nature walk nearby if you live in the area.

easy trail for kids, fun with lots of wildlife and learning spots. There's access to the river and a nature center. definitely a fun time and worth the hike. it did cost $8 to get in but that's probably an elevated price for memorial day weekend.

Fantastic hike with kids. We started on the Meadow trail, then veered to the River View trail and hung out at the River for a while. Lots of wildlife. wWatch out for rattlers, but don't let that deter you. Finish it with a visit to the wonderful Effie Yeaw Nature Center, and you've got yourself a fabulous morning!
