A bit muddy and some confusion on parks being closed off (one side was roped off, but the other wasnt. We didn't realize we were on the closed part till we were exiting.) The overall hike was excellent, though. Not experienced hikers, but it was very easy for us to get through minus a few rocky areas.

A portion of this trail is closed for “dangerous trail conditions.” A bit of it was a little confusing and we got onto a middle path somehow.

Lots of connecting trails, but all are short so it’s fun to go off the map and explore. You’ll end up back at the start eventually! Can get muddy in places, and there’s often a decent amount of people. Great for a beginner hiker.

Very good trail that follows the rapids/river/falls with the woods on the other side. The trail is rocky in parts but nothing difficult.

Hiked last weekend with my dog who gives it 5 stars. Trails are marked and can be followed easily if you watch for the blazes. Nice walk along the water and over the rocks but nothing that is too difficult.

A great trail. A bit muddy and rocky. It is nice and shaded by the rhododendrons.
