This trail winds through dense, jungle-like vegetation, with diverse and varying landscapes to enjoy. With some changes in elevation, this trail is somewhat brief but can provide a decent challenge. The major payoff is a spot on the river underneath the suspension bridge, affectionately called "Dog Beach" by locals, where hikers allow their dogs to play in the water while off-leash.

Nice and easy trail. Features a cool bridge and some nice views. Some parts have wooden flooring, other parts are sandy/muddy. Very shaded and overall good trail but nothing spectaular
