Nice hike along the river and not crowded. Mostly fly fishermen on the river. Great trail for off lease and places for our dog to get in the water.

This is a nice easy trail. I took my dog and we had a nice couple hours winding in line with the river. We saw one other dog walking with his human and two trail runners.

The trail follows Century Drive so a lot of traffic noise. The river is beautiful...

This trail is quiet with super green foliage and a gently flowing, clear river. This path travels through a small campground, but you can avoid it by taking one of the off shoot trails closer to the river. Bridge offers an extended hike on other bank. I am not sure if this trail makes a complete loop though. Guard station is charming from the outside. No mosquitoes on Aug 2.

This is a worthwhile little hike. Variations in scenery keep this trail fun and the paths off the main trail add to that. Mosquitoes are in full bloom around the water so be prepared if you want to hang out there.

Pretty wet and snowy but still breathtaking! We took the trail down to the right and followed it down to the water then took a very snowy trek along the waters edge back to the car.

Nice trail for an easy adventure. We snowshoed 4 miles of this out and back. Only ran into one other person who was Nordic skiing. Our dog had a great time running free. River views are beautiful. Light snow cover and a few places on the trail could use more snow. Roads are plowed right now.

This was a beautiful easy trail. The water is crystal clear. They're beautiful flowers along the way. You walk along the river for a lot of it. There is a bridge 2/3rds in. Pack a lunch and just enjoy the day. This hike turned out to be a four hour, 7.34 mile hike for us.

Had the trail to myself except for a few fishermen. Trail got a little soft and muddy in places as the day went on so go early when it's still frozen.
