Wow. This trail could be something really special. First, it is easy to access. And, it follows a stream, so the elevation changes are minimal. It’s mostly treed, too, which is perfect in the summer.

What’s missing, you ask? Oh my gosh. Bridges. There are so many stream crossings. A few have good bridges or wooden planks. The rest, you are on your own trying to step onto slippery wood or rocks. We had to make our own bridge from a fallen tree on one crossing. Another we had to take our boots off to cross. This state park could do a lot better trail maintenance. My husband and I are young and in shape, but we agreed that several people probably get hurt at crossings each year.

I would recommend this hike in the late summer or fall when the water levels are lower. Or hiking in your water shoes!!
