Fun but quite a rocky trail. Easy to get a little lost and go off trail. It would definitely get muddy in the wetter seasons. At least it was shaded and covered for most of it. There is a steep uphill/downhill depending on the way you go. Beware of that. This is a maybe for return for me.

Beautiful day toward the end of March. Trail is damp but not muddy. Everything is green, lush, gorgeous! Lots of wild flowers and butterflies. Took my trail dog and he enjoyed it, too!

No trail signs. Not enough elevation gain for moderate rating. Although there were many rocks to walk on to add difficulty. Too many wide paths.

Completely the trail on a winter mid/late afternoon. 60’s and clear skies. With such context: great trail! Enjoyed it very much. Walk it, run it. Little parking area at the beginning of it. Pretty green this time of the year. Hits the river with nice views. Recommend it for a quick close to 3 miles, light moderate trail. Somewhat rocky here and there.
