The trails are on private property but open to the public. There are two sign-in sheets, one towards the river and one about 50 yards up the main mountain trail. It is a strenuous hike up the mountain due to incline, but you gradually begin to see views of the river on your right. Trails are clearly marked. Take some time to see the waterfall to the trail on the right once you hear the running water. Be cautious near the cliffs. Back track and cross the stream. The trail then breaks off to the right for the first lookout point of panoramic views. Gorgeous photo opportunity. The trail continues on, but we stopped here. A reminder it is an out and back type of walk. Trekking poles were useful.
