This trail would be great for a local person just looking for exercise, rather than a tourist looking to experience the views and scenery that the area is known for. The trail is relatively flat but the All Trails distance description from the parking area they mention to Ilium is actually longer - about 6.5 miles round trip. There is quite a bit of road noise and limited views of the waterfalls without taking a detour off the main trail. A portion of the hike is along the rivers edge but there the trail is running through private land so you can’t actually get to the water. I would recommend looking elsewhere if you’re looking for a hike in this area. And yes, signs posted everywhere - “no dogs”.
