A nice walk through the woods along a reservoir and eventually Larison Creek, ending at Small Pool for a swim. This easy hike starts along Larison Cove, then into the woods as it follows Larison Creek to Small Pool. Those looking for a longer hike can continue further along the trail. The trail is shared by both hikers and mountain bikers.

Trail is well maintained. Fairly private, we ran into one other couple hiking and a mountain biker.

Great hike on a well maintained single track trail. Met one cyclist. Most of walk is along or within ear-shot of water. Nice pool at 3-3.5 miles.
Directions listed here were accurate and easy to follow. No toilet at trailhead :)

This quickly became one of my favorite hiking trails. I enjoy how the trail is so close to the creek, with so many great views along the way. There are several small waterfalls spilling into the creek in the first few miles of the hike. At about 3 miles there is a accessible trail down to the bank, where you can view a crystal clear pool with a small waterfall cascading into it. The trail continues along the creek, sometimes right next to it, and sometimes way above it, but still able to hear it rushing downhill.

One of the best things I like about this hike is the scenery along the way. Dense woods, cascading falls, treelined ridges viewable through the small clearings. All of which made for a great hike.
