The park itself was beautiful and the trail proved to be challenging. However the markings for the trails were an absolute mess. This particular trail on this map is a combination of a few trails which makes it even more confusing to follow. There were so many forks that were not accurately displayed on this map that it causes us to get lost several times. It's a semi large park so I personally find it to be dangerous without accurate maps or rest areas telling you where you are. I wouldn't go back unless it was to swim which I close to the parks entrance.

Spent the afternoon hiking out in the fresh air. The day was perfect, the trail was awesome, quiet except for the occasional sounds of the squirrels chattering, and the song birds singing. The wind whispering from tree to tree, the river babbling over the rocky river bed. Fantastic
