My favorite hike, but then I might be prejudiced since it's practically in my backyard. The trail as depicted is closer to five miles. To get right under 6 you need to include goatcliff trail.

Great trail. The heavy woods were beautiful. I was hoping for more scenic vistas of the river valley but there were enough look outs to satisfy me. We will be going back again to see how it changes when the leaves drop.

Fun trail with rocks for the kids to climb. Lots of poison ivy just to the side of the beginning of the paved trail. Good viewing area at the top.
