We've hiked this trail twice - the first time it was early spring and we had to turn back because the parts of the trail that weren't covered in ice were thick with black mud; the second time was mid summer and much more enjoyable, though we still didn't make it more than a mile or so. The first half mile is not so pretty, but once you go under the highway overpass it gets better. There are a couple swimming hole spots along the way. Mosquitos were enormous and plentiful in July!

Great spot, and easily accessible. Lots of bugs in the first section of the trail, so wear long sleeves.

There are several ways to get into this trail system and Summit Street is just one. Well worth the walk down to the waterfalls. Spring can be a bit muddy so be sure to wear appropriate footwear. Very dog friendly and saw several while on the trail.

Nice main route along the river. Some pretty challenging loops. Some nice new bridges have been constructed in the last couple years.
