If we had stayed on riverside the whole way, we would have crossed the river 11 times and these crossings don't have bridges so I wouldn't recommend hiking them but on horseback or maybe biking would be fine.

Cool trail with 6 river crossings (almost fell in two times) great place to cAmp not that long though hence the four stars.
