This trail had a nice view of the river at the end, but it was just a hard packed gravel road with a constant stream of noisy school buses belonging to a local rafting company coughing smoke and dust at you as they passed on the one lane road. The second half was packed with noisy rafters walking abreast across the whole trail. Not peaceful or very scenic.
