Great hike. This 70 year old is worn out! Moderate trail offers plenty of chances to get your heart rate up. Mixture of terrain and big steps in incline and descent means you need good knees!

Still well maintained and wide in most places. Great vistas with leaves fallen from trees. Still and silent and beautiful. Great exercise when connecting with River Styx trail.

Beautiful trail. A lot of elevation gain at certain points so not for the faint of heart but easy for seasoned hikers. There’s a few historical points along the trail with nice signage. We saw many mushrooms and different colored foliage along the way.

This was a great trail. We did a family outing and I carried my grandson in a sling which I believe he enjoyed. I and proud of the entire Family for completing and hope we all continue to get out there on a regular basis. Celebrated completion with Pho Soup at Boba Lounge in BGKY. Great Day!

HikingGreat!

Great day for hiking. The trail was kept up and well marked. Not too buggy and not a ton of people out. The trail to Echo River Spring was closed from both ways, so we ended up improvising and did just over 6 miles instead of the 4.5 miles. We preferred the trail on the Green River side as it was more remote and a bit more challenging.

Easy to navigate, a couple views of the river. Definitely worth checking out the offshoots along the way!
