Just don't go when the river is high!
this hike was amazing. fun stream crossings when along the creek. cool homesteads for pictures and many different types of mountain views along the loop. long enough to want to pack snacks and plenty of water when its warm and dry out.
Awesome trail. This is a great place for biking or hiking. There is a beautiful stream and some cool old homesteads. There is a bit of an elevation change once the hike gets going, but it's nothing too crazy. The hike to the top is worth the trip.
fun trail with a lot of water crossings!
Snow covered in the am, but not nearly enough to justify snowshoes. Just boots and gaiters. Trekking poles would be nice for stream crossings and general stability - trail was slick with the wet snow. The return was just a bit muddy.
Stream still running. Beautiful trail.
This was a pretty good 8 mile trail run with a little loop in there. The uphill section after leaving the river kicked by butt, however coming down that was a lot of fun. Also, the first part of the trip had wonderful fall leaves along the stream which made for a gorgeous hike. There is about 10 stream crossings which made for a little fun during my run. While not my favorite trail running place, I would do this again for a trail run.
Fun trail crossing the river on stones and logs! Also get to see whats left of a homestead and it really brings you back in time! A gorgeous hike year round!
