Beautiful hike. But of a detour where the trail was overgrown, had to walk along the river. But wasn’t hard to find my way back to the path.

when it loops around to hug the river it was washed out and you had to walk in knee deep water to find the trail again- and then is super overgrown with very slim trail to manage to follow- if not for using this app we wouldn’t have been able to stay on it at all

I ran this trail during the week. It was super busy. I counted about 40 people all congregated in one spot by the water falls. So this will not be your social distancing park. The route is decent: Mostly flat and easy until it gets to the loop section. From there, it will get hilly. Then the trail will dissappear once you get to the river. I was literally walking for 10 minutes and the map marked the trail but there was no trail around. It was covered by overgrown weeds. I had to jump on the river and walk upstream to get back on the trail. JUST BE CAREFUL.

Most of the trail was fine but at the far end, at the part of the loop nearest the water, it was very overgrown and hard to navigate. Saw a disappointing amount of trash near Pot Rocks where people were swimming. Enjoyed the upper part of the loop.

The side of the loop of this trail near the water has practically no markings and is very overgrown

The hike loop was not to hard but with a little bit of rock maneuvering around the pond itself. The pond is beautiful, but be warned: there is a LOT of POISON IVY all along the trail. I have never seen so much in my life. Luckily my fiancé and I were ok because we wore long hiking pants and long sleeves for protection. If you go, wear pants, because it’s everywhere and you have to watch your step, especially around the pond (it was ok leading up to the pond). There were also a bunch of trees down along the trail. Only one being an issue because we kind of had to weed wack though the poison ivy. So stay safe. Beautiful, not too difficult hike otherwise. UPDATE: even with pants and long sleeves and much precaution getting them off we both got poison ivy.

It is a fantastic trail with changes in elevation to get your heart pumping. Most of the trails can be easily navigated, but at multiple points in the trail it is overgrown and washed out. Still worth enjoying, don’t get frustrated if you have to turn around.

Fun trail along the river. Good swimming area about half way. one stream crossing over a long log or rocks. Be careful. Lost one star for the people who left a big pile of trash at the swimming area. Parking was across the highway and very crowded. Get there early.

This should be named the “Lost Trail Trail” because there is neither a pond nor a trail. Overgrowth becomes impassible are the 1.5 mile mark or so. If you think I’m wrong, you can park at the park and ride near Gunpowder Lodge, cross the bridge, and walk through the construction staging area to the trailhead.

This trail is beautiful and provides the peace of nature in the city. Their is quite a bit of over growth and at one part the trail is in-passable but otherwise it's a great trail.
