The actual trails are beautiful but do not park your car there. Came back from the hike to my back window smashed and debit card stolen. Wasn’t the only car there to have been hit.

Some mild blowdown, but easy to navigate. Some mud.

nice trail runs along river. one side is smooth and flat and the other rocky and more into the woods. nice balance of both and plenty of spots to stop and enjoy!

The curve off river was very fun to mountain bike but very steep on one the way back to my start points.
