The trail starts out pretty, but nice, but soon comes into some spectacular scenery at the Narrows. Manageable hills and climbs, and muddy (we had an early spring hike), so prepare accordingly. Would recommend this and other trails at this park.

Nature tripsGreat!

Incredible views, easy to navigate, lots of trail markers. Sketchy cell service so we utilized a paper map found at the beginning of the trail, quite helpful. Will definitely hike this trail again when we are back in the area!

Lovely trail along the water on the eel trail with beautiful views and then through the woods along the middle trail.

Great trail. We went from walking along the water to up above the trees ,, the views were awesome. It was an easy walk. Signs were confusing if u don’t have a map

The trail is in great shape with spectacular views. A light rain was encountered on this hike which made the rocks very slippery.

Cool shaded hike, with paths running along the water. Easy for most, very clean. Plenty of options for going in the water. Family friendly.

Stunning. Absolutely beautiful. Scenic. So many different viewpoints. Not too difficult. Would not suggest little children, lots of rocks, and roots and ups and downs. But gorgeous. Now I’m going to go rest after a great day.

A very nice hike, a good variety of terrain and difficulty. We did the AllTrails recomended trail and had a good time, however, there is alot more to do. A really good hike for a beginner while still enjoyable for an enthusiast.

My family loves to do this trail regularly! It is so beautiful! Lots of wildlife, we saw an almost 6 foot black rat snake, porcupines, woodpeckers, and a river otter most recently.
