We loved this hike. We only hiked about 2 miles out and then back but there were some great sights. Midnight Hole shouldn't be missed. Great little swimming spot with a fun rock jump. Mouse Creek Falls was beautiful as well. The hike wasn't difficult but definitely a memorable one (especially if you jump into the freezing water).

It was a solid little hike, not very difficult. Midnight hole is awesome for swimming. Very large crowds on this hike

Great hike down a well-worn path good for entry-level hiking and horseback riding. Beautiful views of the river and forest the entire route. A little too heavily traveled for my liking which is why we knocked off one star.
