Fairly easy half day hike with great views of several waterfalls. Certain spots aren't marked well but this app helps keep you on the trail.

Stunning and very easy. There is even one portion of the trail that runs along someone's backyard so they decorated it with flowers which is a very cute touch. Great fall hike.

Lovely trail. Solid footing, numerous great views of the river, some quick but steep and challenging climbs.

Could stand to have updated trail markings. And watch your kids and pets near some of the "outcroppings".

This is the most beautiful river I have ever seen! It had been raining a lot over the past few weeks, and it gave the river a lot of power. Along the fairly easy trail, each view of the water was incredible. There were multiple falls areas. My friend said she'd never seen it so high, but that it's still beautiful when the water is running normally. Easy trail, beautiful forest, beautiful water!

Great winter hike and snowshoe walk (we were with cross country skiers who had a harder time, we'd recommend against trying to ski). Trail runs along the river which is beautiful, full of rapids and falls. If you park near the power station (not the Colton side) the trailhead is a little tricky to find. Walk past the station and stay left, follow the fence around the water tower and the trail is on your right just next to the base of the water tower, marked with blue diamond tree markers.

Gorgeous trail! So many waterfalls, and it was so well marked. We did the trail end to end, and it took us 3.5 hrs. (that included stopping to take pictures)

The falls are beautiful and offer some good bouldering spots when the water is low. Absolutely gorgeous
