Scenic and quick trail. I could see how it could be tricky in the winter if it’s icy, but conditions were pretty good today. Great views between the rock walls and the river.

Amazing ledges. Climbed over and through rocks. Made the hike something better than just a flat walk. Trailed well maintained and marked.

Conditions are great on the trail right now. There’s only a small patch of mud and a small patch of ice.

HikingGreat!Icy

It is a beautiful , short , and easy trail. It’s surprising what a beautiful and seemingly isolated trail this is in the middle of town. It was not busy today. Definitely Icy this time of year. The dogs loved it. Plenty of rock formations and views of the river.

Absolutely beautiful scenery. Snowy and somewhat icy in places but totally worth it.

Beautiful trail. One of my favorites. It was pretty treacherous with ice and steep drops to the river though. I recommend waiting for some fresh snow to tackle this one.

“One way” travel on Gorge Trail, but the trail is closed so you have to travel back the same way. Turns the hike into ~3 miles instead of 1.8. Pretty trails, still busy even on a cold day.

Another great day to get out and hike. Nice out and back, easy enough for kids, technical enough to have to pay attention. Dry for most part, couple muddy spots but nothing to crazy. One of a few trails in the area, recommend.

Pretty cool trail. This area would be really pretty with cold, wet conditions that would form icicles on the rock walls and overhangs. Trail was pretty rocky and muddy, with slick leaves. Loud road noise from highway nearby. But nice hike and cool scenery.
