Great hike. Wonderful combination of sights and terrain. Mickey O'Brian trail was a little unkempt and hard to follow but it's fairly easy to find your way back to Cataract trail. Absolutely recommended.

Beautiful hike with a wide variety of scenery. Cataract trail was muddy next to the river, so wear boots if it has rained lately. Cataract trail was busy, but there was no one once we turned onto the High Marsh trail. There were a couple of restrooms (pit toilets) along the trail. Make sure to pay attention to the map here on the app when making the switch from High Marsh trail to the Kent trail, the trails weren't marked well back there.

Great hikes, beautiful views, just enough hills and flats. Took about three hours. Highly recommend.
