This was a great hike especially for kids. It was easy all the way to the ruins as the hike followed the shoals.

We passed the ruins and continued on down to the shoals. The trail markers were difficult to find. If your headed back on the rocks on the shoals you can follow the crowd.

On the other end of the hike is a great trail the follows alongside the river bank. This was nice because the ground was more of a soft sand. While the trail continued on we stopped at the steel covered bridge and had lunch on the river banks.

There are two trails. The red trail which is 2 miles and brings you to the Civil War building and then there is the yellow trail which brings you around the big loop. There is a river in between the trails so you get a nice water scenic. Both are dog friendly and very easy to climb. We did both in one day
