Nice short hike I do on the regular. Great view of some waterfalls on the decent. Didn’t like how a lot of the trail was right next to roads even if they were lightly traveled access roads within the state park.

We took our 5 year old and 2 7 year olds on this hike. They did great. The best part is the waterfall and ravine you get to cross twice. The flatland along the river is dull. Not as many views of the river as I would have expected. Maybe more in the winter.

Nice trail with some good views of the river and a waterfall. We went the day after a decent rain and the trail was very slick in some spots. Best trail in the park, imho.

Prepare for a bit of a steep incline at first then it levels off and descends. We thought is was a very nice casual hike for an experienced hiker. It is $9 out of state and $7 for residence to enter park.

Fine hike. First time to the park. Didn't look at the website prior to going, and was surprised by the $9 non-resident parking fee...

Great trail. The last 1/2 mile or so was on a service road. Overall a decent trail.
