GREAT family hike along the river. Plenty of shady areas to stop and have a snack. This trail is very rocky, steep in some parts but our 4yr old could handle it. Will be doing this again in warmer weather to take advantage of swimming areas.

I hiked this trail with my 4 month old puppy and 3 boys ages 3,3,and 5. This is not a trail for any child younger than 3 or strollers. We loved the rocky trail and the view. The trail was easy to follow because of the river. Definitely going back.

Beautiful, relatively close to providence, but full of ticks and poorly marked. Midway through trail we stumbled upon red blazes. Guess I would start at bottom of lot and head in on red blazes. We started top of lot and there was a ton of well worn trails but but absolutely no markings! I’ll come back in the winter as I think this has the potential to be much better!

So I'm a beginner and I found this trail difficult with all the rocks! we started along the shore though instead of the path. The path goes unmarked when you hit the clearing. It was very beautiful and fun, you can hear the water rushing. There were at least 3 different groups hanging out, smoking pot however. Seems to be a place people come to do that.

Nice hike with some rocky terrain and elevation changes. Great water and waterfall views. Nice place for birdwatching. Trails are decently marked, but the presence of the river will give even first-timers confidence in not getting lost.

Great outcroppings with views of the gorge. I only wish the trail was better marked.

Short and simple, great place to unwind after work, or a perfect picnic spot. Bring bugspray, where there's water there's bugs!
