Great trail. About 4 hours if you push all the way to the intersection with the Pipeline Trial and take advantage of all the photo opportunities. That makes it about a 6 mile round trip from the parking area.

Fantastic trail! Nonstop views. There are some areas where the trail deceives you. One of my favorite hikes in the US!!

Though normally lost, this ones signage was pretty bad and hard to follow. It was really easy to get off trail.

Great trail. Lovely views along the way.

At about 4 miles in the trail is diverted so you will go slightly off course but it comes back to the main trail again, very clear. Some great views but mostly forest.

This was an amazing hike found unexpectedly thanks to a fellow hiker who was looking for the trail. Past seven bridges I came across only a handful of people. Definitely coming back!

This is a moderate hike up to bridge 7. After that the trail turns to more of a scramble, still children were able to complete it. Parking is a bear, get there early.

If you go all the way to the waterfall, be prepared for loose gravel on steep trails! The kids enjoyed finding all 7 bridges.

One of the best trails I’ve been on. A lot of traffic at first but once you get further back into the bridges it lightens up. Beautiful river and pretty good inclines in places. Will be on my top five list for sure.
