Beautiful and easy trail that goes along the river and flume, along the side of the cliff and you get higher a over the river. It then ends (trail a little difficult to see once you're all the top) at a beautiful little pool with salamanders to have a nice picnic and just enjoy the quite. Very few people on this trail every time I've gone. I love this for a nice hike and picnic.

Great lil hike for a date! Trail leads to a little waterfall and if you're daring you can go off to the right and hike along the boards on the aqueduct.

The trail to the suspension bridge and beyond is a very friendly family hike. There is some river access, but be aware of the danger of a fast moving river. The hike is pretty flat but you will have t work your way through river rocks. Over the years of being traveled over many of the rocks have become smooth so be careful of your step. Check out the views of the river and canyon along with the springtime wildflowers growing along the banks. At the end of your half mile hike you can cross over the river on a suspension foot bridge. Kids love the way it sways. If your staying at Potwisha camp ground, or you just need an afternoon out this is a good hike for everyone.

My family and I hiked this trail in the early spring. We found fire salamanders in the creek and lots of toads and other animals. It was a fun walk and everyone enjoyed it.
