Description
Waypoints (17)

Parking is decent & the trail was really easy to follow. The trail includes a lot of pretty easy up and downs, with a handful of small hills. It is really peaceful and a great trail for those who like to walk amongst a bunch of trees with the sound of river and spots for dogs to get a drink. Not exactly a lot of views of mountains, but plenty of shade on a hot day.

Super nice hike in the woods! It was not very busy in the morning but by 11:30 the parking lot was getting full. This was on a Tuesday. My dog loved the hike and appreciated being so close to water the whole time!

Nice trail along the creek. Terrain was fairly easy and trail was simple to follow. Lots of parking available, but on Sunday morning it was pretty full when we finished.

CampingGreat!

Great trail. I camped here Tuesday September 22nd and there was only 1 other family camping. Several mice got into my car overnight (despite the doors and windows being closed) so make sure you place anything that could conceivably be seen as food in a hard sided cooler or container. I had some paper towels left out in my trunk that the mice shredded up so you might throw those and napkins, etc in a container as well. Other than the mice, it was a great place to camp and a great trail. As mentioned by the signs when you first enter, there are bears in the area (although I didn't see any) so you will need to account for that if you camp (bear cannisters or hanging food, bear spray, etc). Also, there was a sign indicating that a permit was required to use camp stoves.

HikingGreat!

Now one of my favs to do with the fam and elderly dogs. Just hard enough for them. We love feeling like we are in the middle of the forest and you get that feel. Not too rocky, not enough to wear boots. Lots of shade and along water the whole time. Just lovely!!

No gps AllTrails dropped so I restarted :) My 7 & 10 year old were pooped by the time we got back to the car. Win win. Plenary of shade, water & masks.

Really nice moderate trail with lots of shade and lovely fall colors. Was the perfect first hike for our puppy! Leads to another trail, so not much of a climax and not a trail full of great views.

Great hike, beautiful scenery. some up hill but not too bad. Wasn't sure when it ended, hit a sign which stated trail shared by horseback and ATVs, figured we'd gone the 2 miles out so headed back.

Nice shady trail. I didn’t have my dog, but she would love that it’s next to water the entire time. I checked the sign at the trailhead and didn’t see any post about dogs needing to be on leash.

Beautiful trail, great for dogs and kids. Looking forward to camping there next time. Only downfall was the amount of dogs off leash. This trail is far too popular for dogs to be running free like that. We encountered 7 different dogs that came right up to our dogs who were leashed. It was extremely frustrating due to our puppy having high anxiety while leashed and being approached by unfamiliar dogs. Please respect the leash law and fellow hikers. Regardless of how well behaved you think your dog is, it’s the law and you’re sharing space with other people. Our dogs have a right to a stress free hike just as much as you do.

Good and pretty easy trail. Dogs loved the many opportunities to swim throughout the hike and along the trail.

Such a beautiful trail- follows the river the whole way. Small rolling hills that have been fine for visitors/taking our parents- mostly shaded.

Soooo beautiful!! I got there at 8am and didn’t see a single person out there! Coming back was a different story but everyone wore masks as they passed etc. no service, so download the trail if you want to go based off that. I didn’t have the trail downloaded so I walked 2.05 miles and then there was another trail but I just turned around to do the 4.10 miles. But by far one of my favorite hikes and definitely going to visit again!! And check out the other trail
