If you like mud, this is for you. It hasn’t rained in over a week and the river water level is low, but the trail is still mostly mud. There are many down and dead trees throughout. One of my kids said it reminds him of a scene from a horror movie so not the most enjoyable nature scene either. Perhaps if the trail were completely frozen it may be more enjoyable but there was so much mud we took the main road back, despite the lack of a sidewalk to do so.
