Hiked this trail with my wife and kids, 11, 9, and 6. Had to stop a few times towards the end of the trail as the climb was a bit steep but we managed just fine. Mostly shaded the entire length. Nice river access near the large bridge. Spent some time playing in the water, fishing -my 9 year old pulled in 2 small fish- and we caught plenty of crayfish. Very fun spot. Also stopped and explored the old dam site ruins.

Short trail goes past an old dam site that still has remains left. Also goes past a small family burial plot
