Waterfall. Wild Trout Streams, Black River, Hemlock forest, Deep Ravines This loop hike is great if you are looking to get out for the day but relax more than hike. The hike will take you down into the Blackriver as well as along Trout and Rhinehart Brook, Hemlock Ravines and mature hardwood forests. The trails are wide and have gravel put down. If you want that challenge there are a few trails along the Black River that are more like hiking trails, narrow and rocky. This hike will take you through both trail types. Along the trails you will pass many benches and picnic areas. There are also old water fountains along the way that where built by the Civilian Conservation Cor, during the depression. They no longer work though. The trails are all unmarked but will be getting marked in the next year. The best time to hike the area is during the week when you will only encounter fly fisherman. Weekends tend to get crowded.

It’s a great moderate trail. There are others trails that link each other throughout the park. The red trail goes along the river with some beautiful spots to stop.

Get there early, grab a map, and watch out for the occasional path scat. A number of trails to suit various fitness levels. Today was my second visit and I followed the red to the blue connect. There's a good amount of rocky terrain along the banks by the water. I recommend the red to anyone who's got some experience hiking and can go between 1 and 2 hours. Bathrooms serve their purpose and trail stops don't have running water. Still a beautiful park, nonetheless. Enjoy.

We did the on a cool day with about a zillion kids. Did red which starts with paved and gravel ... along a stream and waterfall with many broken down picnic areas (sad that they were allowed to fall into disrepair). Kids loved climbing some "scary" steps (be careful tho for real) down to the stream.

Follow the red around and it loops up and back
to the river. Nice places to stop and rest and hop around the rocks, dip your toes, etc. All
a sudden the trail along the river gets GOOD... rocks, roots, real hiking. Hard for the littlest kids but big kids loved. Tons do huge rocks to climb and jump around.

We rested near a bridge and decided to cut it short due to hunger complaints from the kids... we did white and blue back up to the lot. Uphill so much complaining ... there's a crappy playground .... and then it got crowded so we were thankful we came early.

Hit with the kids ! We enjoyed it also and will be back.
