Easy walk along river but some areas of trail you need to do a little bushwhacking. Definitely need bug spray!

Easy nice trail for great fishing access on the Gunnison! Great little shaded loop to take a walk with a young family or go hammer some Browns and Kokanee!

Tried this trail today. Muddy in places but after the bridge too much water to cross trail. Very easy walking though until we hit the water. will try again in a week or so.

Tried this trail June 26, 2019. Lots of mosquitoes plus just past foot bridge trail is totally underwater due to high run off so can't go very far.

Neversink is never open during the summer when there is a lot of runoff. The trail tends to flood. I tried to go at the end of May and July, and the trail was closed at the bridge. The walk up the bridge was nice though.

Easy access for a quick outing. Did it in deep snow. Only saw a couple folks on the trail. Overall nice hike.

Cute trail along the river BUT.....as we were walking hubby suggested the trail be named dog poop trail. There were at least 50 PILES of dog poop mainly near the beginning of the trail. And to end it off near the trash was a condom.

Very short. And most of the time flooded but you can see moose and salmon and all sorts of critters along the waters edge.

Nice trail with scenic views. You can tell lots of animals are around. Decently maintained in the beginning but has no defined end.

I would give this trail a 5 for birding and a 3 for maintenance. We saw lots of birds and enjoyed the sounds of them and the frogs. The river is encroaching on the trail and unless something is done, parts of it will be gone.

Good for a short stroll. You can hear Highway 50 the whole time, and the trail becomes confusing towards the end (at least during snowy weather, which is what I had). I would recommend it if you wanted a quick outing.

Beautiful area with picnic tables and good trail. A nice place to take a break from our cross-country drive from Colorado Springs to home in California.

At the beginning of this trail there was a sign that read the trail was not recommended for travel. Since it was merely "not recommended" instead of closed, we went ahead and did it. The first half mile was well-traveled and crossed the creek a couple of times (on bridges). After that, it became a mess of overgrowth and the trail was not pleasant to follow. Later, when talking to a park ranger, he said the trail was really used for bird watching in the spring, hence the lack of maintenance. There is fishing access, but the trail head sign recommended a couple of other fishing locations to the west.
