Very scenic. The paths are wide and easy to traverse. There is a bathroom/port-o-potty at the beginning of the path.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail whether you begin in Apollo or at the Rock Furnace trail. If doing the regular bike trail be sure to take the side trail heading toward Rock Furnace. A beautiful stream and swinging bridge are worth the time!

Very easy out and back. Trail is well maintained and only saw a few other people. Water wasn't really flowing over the falls, but I could imagine they would be nice.

This is a great walk when you want to walk in the woods for an hour on a flat and wide trail. Not too many people here which was wonderful. The river is gorgeous and loved by the dogs and fisherman. If you bring a dog, pick up its poop or else dogs will be banned.

HikingGreat!

Super tranquil and beautiful walk next to the river. I took one of my dogs and we walked the main trail as well as some of the less traveled more wooden trails. Easy access to the river and there’s many benches along the trail to stop.

RunningGreat!

Absolute diamond in the rough! I was raised in Apollo so I park at the North Apollo access and run through downtown, then behind the Mosey (now named something else) and continue to the original Roaring Run trail head. Super flat (so flat it looks up hill both ways) so it is good for every skill level and even intervals. I run this every day I am back home to visit.

A hidden gem!! We loved this hike and will be back for a bike ride. The Kiskiminetas River is gorgeous! The trail is easy but probably rated as moderate because you can take offshoot trails to get closer to the stream that runs into the river. It’s a great place for beginners. Just beautiful.

paved trail, good if you're looking for something easy. river and waterfall are highlights. small trails off of this are worth poking around.

The path shown is 5 miles in each direction. I would also rate this as easy. The entire path is gravel and barely any elevation

Great trail - took the long way and it was a easy hike. The water falls were awesome and nice and cold on a hot day.

Nice place to bike for about 1.5 miles, then make a left to hike to Rock Furnace. Creek is beautiful and has a perfect area for swimming. Has a few nice waterfalls off the designated path and a much larger one (if you're willing to do the work to find it.) Always a great area to spend the day!

This was a nice adventure! For those who stated that the trail was “extremely easy” may not have been on the actual hiking and biking trail, which is to the left of the walking trail. I continued to go off path at Jackson falls to find a quaint little area til sit down and eat my snacks before heading back. Some beautiful waterfalls!

This a great place for a walk. There is the main trail that is flat and great for younger kids, but there is also signs for "side trail" which is for hiking /biking. It is definitely narrow and has some more difficult terrain for anyone in the mood for a little more excitement.
