Enjoyed exploring the canyon, paths are clearly labeled and safe for the most part. I chose to follow some paths not marked... climbed some boulders and jumped across the water to explore the other side. Great day.

The loop is pretty but takes you along cliffs above the river. In order to get to the river you need to take a different trail instead of the loop. Their are all moderations from flat, to step ups along this trail. Will do it again, but was not my favorite.

The bottom Creek Trail is the best. The trail follows the river and it also is partially through the trees, it also a nice hike up the the dam the broke. We were here in February and it was still nice with the snow around as well. Very easy hiking and great for dogs.

Not as crowded when snowy! Love taking my dog here. Wouldn't say moderate difficulty... definitely an easy, laid back nature stroll.
