My family did this hike in Oct of 2017. The kids were 5 and 3 at the time and had no issues walking on the trail but because of them we only went about a mile in. Despite the name of the hike most of what we hiked was not along the river and that was disappointing. There was one spot we managed to get down to the river but otherwise it was a trail through the woods, but a nice one and scenic, despite a large pipeline that is visible at times.
