Beautiful hike once you get about a mile in. Lots of rock formations and the river is nice.

It was very hard to find the beginning. No signs. Park to the right, before you cross bridge, then hop curb side railing on the other side of the road. Started out simple, not much scenery, but then started getting better about 3/4 of the way. Nice rock formations, a few small caves, if you deviate from the path just a bit. Not too strenuous until you make your way back, only because you are making your way back up. Didn't run into any animals, but saw some droppings and paw prints. Pretty much shaded throughout. Nice trail. Not alot of markers though. Trail wasnt too hard to follow, lots of leaves. Recommend hiking shoes/boots. Take a little lunch, can rest at the halfway point down by the river. Peaceful
