Overgrown and not much to see. Nice view of the Delaware but few and far between trees and tall weeds. Weeds were over our heads at times and the path wasn’t even as wide as a person. Wouldn’t do it again.

Really nice trail, just a bit tight in areas. We didn't mind, but some people didn't seem to like squeezing by our Pitties. I do love the fact that it isn't overly traveled and we had a lot of quiet "alone" time.

Trail is open again. There is a large section of it that is pretty messed up from the loggers rolling through. There are two trails that run next to each other and connect here and there. the higher up one they made into the logging road and is pretty muddy but the lower one next to the river is alright with some down trees only.

Scenic relatively easy trail, much of which runs parallel to the Delaware River with lovely views of the surrounding areas. Bring your camera!
