It was a mild, gorgeous day, so it was pretty crowded. We got the last spot in the parking area. The red trail is quite easy. There are benches at fairly frequent intervals. The white/riverside trail I would classify as moderate, narrowed with loose stones, tree roots, sloping to sheer drop offs with no rails/barriers, and some steep hills with rocks. Also, no benches. My kids whined on this trail. The dog enjoyed the little beach at the river’s edge. I enjoyed the lush forest and waterfall views. There was a nice seating area at one of the waterfalls. We did not go on the Father C. Jorn/blue trail, which I believe had the old icehouse on it and another waterfall. The family wasn’t up for it. I’ll definitely be back to check that out. Overall, I was very impressed with the trails at this preserve! Very well marked with flares and clear paths.
