awesome hike. Look out for the swarms of bees that you have to walk thru on the trial. Other than that it was amazing

A lot of fun, lots of views and landscape points throughout. There are dirt bikers and lots of people in the afternoon. Morning is the best time to go. Very quiet and cool, also before all of the bugs come out. But this has been my favorite trail in the area so far.

Just about jiggled the fillings out of my teeth! Went about 3-4 miles in and my wrists told me to turn around lol. Most amazing place I ever saw! Coming back on foot next time. A groundskeeper told me there has been a cougar (not a hot milf looking for fun) seen around the area recently so be careful. Might want a hand gun just in case for safety reasons. It’s against the rules I think but it’s better than getting your leg chewed off.

The trailhead is really easy to find right past Harris Park. The first part of the trail is easy and follows along the river.

Awesome hike, little muddy, and dirt bike noise can ruin the mood but when they aren't around it's breathtaking.

Great easier trail following the river through forests. I went about a month ago and it was a little muddy in low spots but no problem. Would be great on a mountain bike!

Thinly absolute favorite spot to go. Its located in Harris Park. Furthest I've gone so far is 9 miles out and back.

I absolutely loved this hike! I was only able to go up four miles but I am definitely going to come back and explore as much of this trail as possible.

Hiked roughly 5 miles worth of this trail on 4/27/17 and it was great! The section we did definitely wasn't that hard. I plan on doing this trail a few more times this summer.

It's difficult in many places. If you want a short hike the 1st bit is easy. It's been good for me to be prepared for rattlesnakes, bears and motorcycles. The views are the best and so I really recommend it if you are prepared to take it on.

Great trail, crowded on weekends. Wreckage gone now.

Great trail for hiking, mountain bikes and horses. Only went about 2 miles in as had a pregnant friend with me, but it was a good trail with beautiful scenery and gentle ups and downs. I want to go all the way in sometime. Very popular spot and lots of people on the trail.
