Well maintained grass trail that would be great to take pups out on. I made the mistake of wearing my gym shoes and wish I would have worn shoes that could get muddy. A few spots were rough but overall a flat and easy walk along the (dried up) river. This trail comes out at the highway so about 1/4 mile is paved cement. Your start and finish is at the campground, which is small and quiet. The Cardinal Flower trailhead, which is .8 miles is also at this trailhead. It too, is an ok grass path. I enjoyed this walk in the woods but probably wouldn’t make a special trip unless I was here to camp. Happy hiking, folks!
