Nice views along this trail walking along the river with waterfalls and decent tree cover. Pretty good trail for backpacking but probably better suited for bike- packing. The hike is all on a road so it’s pretty tough on the feet with a pack. That’s the only ding. Otherwise, it’s a surprisingly well set up camp with fire rings and charcoal grills (though fire restrictions prevented use). The stream/river along the whole hike is a huge plus. At least when I went, there was plenty of water available. Some fishing if you can fly fish, but catch and release. Not a whole lot to see otherwise but a decent outing.

The wife and I hiked in little over 3 miles to the handicap fishing platform. We also checked out future fishing holes in the river and decided we will definitely be coming back with fishing poles in hand.

Rode my bike in , wow the views are amazing. You quickly forget how close you are to the city. The road is easy to navigate. Very well maintained and clean. Great fishing opportunities throughput the entire trail. . The camp is great , water is everywhere, shade . Restrooms and trash service. Will definitely come back again and again. Super easy and fun hike or bike, all skill levels.

It’s a pretty easy hike. The road is paved and heavily trafficked for the first couple of miles but relatively quiet afterwards.
I was struck by the scenery on the way in. Perhaps because of that I was a little disappointed with the campground. It isn’t bad but I did feel a little letdown after such a stunning walk-in. Oh, don’t count on the toilets being unlocked so you may want to bring a trowel if you’re planning on camping.
