My coworker and I went on a hike here late Sunday afternoon. The trail was fairly easy to find, and parking was not an issue. I can always appreciate that!

Once we got out, we began walking the loop. There were sign markers every so often to help guide as well as blue markers. The blue markers were not as frequent/visible as I would have liked, but they were still helpful. The trail was pretty easy, and there was nothing very exciting about it. We caught a glimpse of the river in the middle of the hike. Then it was back to the woods for the rest.

Generally speaking, this was a quick and easy trail. There was not anything wrong with it, but it certainly was not anything to write home about.
