A bit too close to the road and some sort of business but overall a nice hike with one good climb going through a beautiful pine forest with thick fern undergrowth. An extra 0.5 mile nature loop was nice. Climbed the fire tower at the turn which was cool.

Great trail. Has a few hills. Outstanding scenery. The Fire tower at the end is really cool.

Starting at the fire tower, trails changes elevation moderately, parts of which meander through a gorgeous mature hemlock/mixed hardwood forest. Eventually it drops steeply, picking up the river before it concludes at the covered bridge. Parts extremely muddy and not all wooden water crossings adequately covered with non-slip chicken wire. Beware when moist.

Short & some what difficult trail. Enjoyed the challenge of the inclines & also keeping my footing with the declines. Beautiful trail along the stream.

Amazing trail. Best in the park. Steep grades, primitive trail segments, and lots to see and appreciate. Enjoy!

This is a tough trail as it is mainly uphill and very tight but still beautiful and would definitely do it again.
