This trail can be accessed from the river area parking or the trailhead parking lot to hike back up to the entrance overlook of the park. The dark blue/purple blazes are difficult to see but frequent enough that you can always see one from anywhere on the trail. Much of the trail is along the river but the last 1/2 to 3/4 mile climbs up to near the overlook at the entrance. The trail in this section is narrow, steep, and rocky.
