Really enjoyed the scenery. Could be more navigation signs posted. Easy to follow trail until you get close to the end. There are a couple large decline on the trail. Over all good trail!

It's a good hike but sometimes the trail can be really overgrown so keep that in mind before you go. I've actually lost the trail before when going closer to the river. But it's a pretty area and doesn't get that crowded.

not a bad trail, I didn't see anyone on it until I was back at the parking lot. I wish I would've also gone on knight's ferry I think it's called because that goes to river. I got to see a couple deer also!

A very pleasant yet engaging trail. Not too crowded, and plenty of deer and birds to spot.
