great trail! near the beginning you will come across "Jump Rock" which is a giant rock to jump off into the rock quarried river. Great place to swim on a hot summer day.

This is a great trail. Not to tuff and the elevation isn't to bad. Good for people looking to do a long moderate.
Best season is fall due to all the colors, less rain, and less bugs.
