1/2/2020 - This is an easy trail that can be done in hiking boots. The trail is about 8’ wide the entire time was recently grated to pack down the snow. Nice walk through the woods. The best views are in the beginning around the swinging bridge.

Would highly recommend. I just went and snowshoed this route. Took us about 1 hour 45 minutes. Highly recommend right after a light snowfall.

Nice hike. Limited views of river, but nice exposure to the Minnesota north woods. Mature stands of birch, aspen, and balsam/spruce.

Icy!!!! This trail was beautiful today (snowy) and very icy. Wear spikes and be very careful. I saw a few people falling today. Great signs and trail markings. Beautiful in the afternoon when the sun is setting.

The trail was so beautiful in the snow. Definitely a challenge at some parts, about four switchbacks and lots of uphill/downhill but so worth it! Definitely will be coming back

Beautiful trail! Like most, the more you travel into the trail the less people. Great mix of scenery.

Most of the loop is in secluded woods, it was very peaceful! The beginning of the loop crosses a suspension bridge which offers amazing views of the rapids. Would recommend!

honestly, this park was a quick stop and did not get the time it truly deserved. We decided last minute to do this hike passing through, and boy was it beautiful! we will definitely be back. the trail was great although a bit busy compared to what we prefer. I will say that dont just stop here, the park itself is so diverse and honestly reminded us a bit of yellowstone.

A popular trail, but the crowd really dispersed as you get away from the water and swinging bridge. Some hills and a bit muddy, but overall pretty easy. Beautiful fall colors, and I can’t wait to explore more trails around this park! My 150th completed trail in AllTrails.

First time on this trail yesterday (9.27.20) and it was great! The beginning near the bridge was really busy, but once we got about a half mile into the actual trail it wasn't as crowded. There was lots of good squishy mud throughout but most spots were easy to get around. This is a great trail for dogs.
