Enjoyed the trail. Met a friendly local at the trail head that described the paths for me since there are several from this location. The best way to make the river loop is to stay to the left. The trail will loop back and connect with another trail. Stay straight and it will lead back to the start. Be sure to have a WMA permit for this area.

We had a great time .. Nice incline to get your blood circulating ..and just when the kids got a little tired.. A beautiful flowing river came along with fantastic rocks, that you can climb to get a closer view of the water scenery and have a little snack ! We followed the river for a ways and then a forest with fresh fall leaves on the ground came along, with a few surprise mini creeks ! Turned out to be a great day !

Did not see one other person. Up and down the whole time. The river was worth it! Dogs loved it!
The sign to get there is actually Rich mountain. Use the gravel road. This a hunting and fishing place so not sure how this factors into hiking there year round.
