Fun hike up to a nice view point overlooking the river. The trail is nicely maintained until it isn't. There is no real stopping point it just becomes a very narrow trail with a lot of vegetation. This is probably past the 2 mile mark.

Really enjoyed, poor gps quality as you can see from the map. Told us it was about 6.5 miles, unsure on the accuracy. Very lush and green right now, beautiful. Would recommend.

2nd time. Took all of my daughters (minus one) this time. Still didn't make it to the end but had a terrific time. Love this easy trail.

I chose this trail because I wanted to start with an easy trail as I work my way back into hiking. It is indeed an easy trail but it is also in bear country. After hiking 2 miles in by myself I began to pass several large bones. Once I got to bones that still had meat on them I decided to turn around. The only wildlife I saw was deer. And that’s all I wanted to see. I did not realize it was bear country until I went back into the town of Avery and saw the pictures on the wall.

First to Review

The only wildlife I saw was a fuzzy caterpillar but it was the fuzziest caterpillar I ever did see.
