Bring $10 for the Auburn State Rec Area park/ing fees!

Would not really advise doing this trail in the middle of summer as there's not much shade cover and it's super hot and dusty. The "end" point is pretty anti-climactic (think you just hit a "no entry" point) - we tried to take a different route down that ended up being super steep and had to crab-crawl down at some points, so make sure you have the right shoes for it if you want to try that.

Good hike with lots of different trails. We started in a residential lot (kind of got lost here) and ended up finding the fire trail and taking it to the bridge trail. 80% of the hike was in the sun, but other than that the trail was wide and nice view of water. Didn't go past the bridge though. Solid 2 hours exploring here

Great hike and was definitely a bit of a challenge, mostly downhill on the way out but the way back was mostly uphill so just be prepared. There are a lot of turn offs, so it was really helpful to have the map open on AllTrails to keep to the main route. However, you can make the trail all your own by taking different turns. Was mostly shaded and had some nice views. We found a little turn off that led us to a bench and had a great view of the river. Bring water!

The hike was beautiful!! There wasn't that many people but the people we did see were very nice and helpful:) the waterfall wasn't super big but it still was breathtaking to see, some advice would be to bring lots of water and be prepared for and uphill walk on the way back. Overall it was a beautiful hike and I would definitely do it again!

Super exposed on the side of the mountain for long periods of time. The dogs feet were getting too hot and I felt very bad for her. Very very far down to the water.

This was bad. I got rammed and stomped by a buck about 1.2 miles . Guess it's that time of the year

Beyond that. It was nice

Decent hike, but the trail given on the app does NOT have a waterfall.

Good downhill hike in. Not a ton of shade, but great views. Getting down to the water is great, but the way back up is almost all up. Might be tough for some people.

Took us a few loops and trails to find the right path to the river! Ended up having to use the map on this app and it really helped! Beautiful day and will be coming back!

Not sure we actually did the whole trail, but we did get to Robie point and came down to the river on our way back. Beautiful trail with some steep hills

Great hike, bit the trails aren't marked very well. Ended up making one major with turn that had all directions going back to the trail which was confusing.

Great moderate trail lots of up and down. Beautiful clean trail. A few water features. Bridges and river views.

Con: pet friendly trail do there was a lot of horse manure and dog poop on trail.

Began the trail but somehow we walked a loop back to the car. Never found the beach. There was a time where we had to make a decision to continue on another trail and that might have been our mistake?
