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.

The water had been significantly drained, so what we thought would be a creek-side-cruz, ended up being a trek alongside a drained river bank. The hike was still beautiful, well marked and mild. 3.5 miles in was a beautiful little swimming hole. The mosquitos are no joke!

Fun hike- lots of mosquito's!! Bring your spray :)

Also- the trail is longer than what is listed, going to the swimming area (about 3 miles in) and back, we were tracked at doing a little over 6 miles.

No real complaints. views of the water, lots of greenery, had the trail to myself the whole time, did 5.5 miles in a couple hours. good way to pass time, trail is pretty flat, lightly trafficed.

5/14/17 this trail is much longer than a 5.6 round-trip. According to FS.USDA.gov this is a 6.3mile (one way) trail. The first 3miles are pretty gentle. At around 3 miles the incline increases and is a steady climb. About 4 miles in the trail starts switch-backing with a good grade to it. I did 9.71miles (in-and-out) today and my tracker showed me 1-2miles from NF-101 before I had to turn back due to time. I will definitely do this one again when I can get an earlier start.

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.
