I was looking for a short beautiful hike and this one was perfect! The trails were easy to follow (yellow->red->blue) and generally wide and smooth. Signs of spring are showing but there are a few final patches of snow. The stream crossings were challenging but doable with high water levels. Hiking poles came in handy for stability here! We turned left where the blue trail goes left to go down the Sunken Mine Road. Since it was around sunset, we saw a lot of beavers, two of which gnawing on trees along the shores. Very cute and fun to watch! The hike took us about 2 hours but that was with many stops for pictures and to enjoy the peace!
