Hike along the Clear Fork River almost the entire loop. Connects to John Muir and Honey Creek. Pretty easy going. It is rocky, can be muddy and wet too. Overall easy and well worth it.

Definitely wouldn’t say moderate, but it was beautiful and nice for a good hike! Lots of good swimming and camping spots too!

This trail is not moderate. in fact if you just want to walk through the woods this is it. There are a few areas you would might consider difficult but only because it up hill. It was a nice hike but definitely not what I expected. I would consider this particular trail easy. My dog did great too.

was a good overall trail! Download the map so that you stay on the trail, even though it is marked pretty well. Loved being able to hike next to the river! it rained quite a bit about 2 days ago, but it wasn't muddy. Definitely would recommend this trail!

A lot of rock features. Most of the trail follows the creek. Plenty of photo opportunities. Not terribly difficult but there a few scramble worthy sections. Actually loved the trail!

Perfect for a small backpacking trip with dogs! The trail is mostly in the shade. We found a really nice campsite with rock chairs about 1.1 miles in.

One of my favorites. Since i am a mending heart (3x bypass) i can not tolerate a lot of steep grades especially with a pack.this one is for me. i hike clickwise and camp just before the uphill portion. lots to see. plenty of water so you dont have to pack a lot. not many people past the first campsite. trail is well maintained but rocky in spots past first campsite.

This Hike is unusual. I hiked it last week in the rain. Brought my wife and dog this time. You hike riverside 80% of the time and hike near rock walls of various heights for 70% of the time. I like going clockwise better around the Loop. Several very cool camp sites and many large rocks sticking out in the river all over the place for a great picnic spots. A couple hidden waterfalls are worth exploring as well as a cave or 2. Some mud, elevation,fallen trees, and switch backs give the hike some challenge. Tree cover make this great for rain or sun. Don't forget to do a tick check. Both the dog and I picked up a crawler or 2. Also pack some bug spray or face netting. Drop toilets at the trail head if your in need

Lots of trees on the trail that had blown down, could use some maintenance but overall a nice and easy hike.

This is one of my favorite trails. It's not that long but lots to see. Most of the trail is river side with some great camp sites. Check this one out.

Hiked this on January 5th. 60 degrees, beautiful hike. Lots of water falls due to the abundance of rain we've had. River was swollen and raging. Very cool hike. We'll be back for sure. Easy hiking.

I will say, I really enjoyed this hike. It’s fairly short so I don’t know if it’s worth driving just for this loop, but there are plenty of other great hikes in the park. It’s definitely worth the fifteen minute extra drive, or extra walk around if you hike to it. It’s simple, but has enough elevation change to make you feel accomplished. Only thing Ill say is make sure you go counter-clockwise if you can, much lower chance of rolling your ankle

great trail! the mountain laurel was blooming everywhere 5-15-18! just watch for snakes this time of year. we didn't see any venemous ones though thankfully.

Pretty good Family friendly trail. The hill climb may challenge the youngest hikers (pre-teen) but is not too bad overall. Lots of rapids to view and a couple waterfall areas if recently rained. Great camping.

Easy to moderate hike, that parallels the river for the majority of the hike. Not too much of an incline and plenty of spots to stop and take in the scene of the rushing water. The waterfall isn’t anything major and you could almost pass it up when there hasn’t been a lot of rain but was still a lovely addition to this soothing trek.

Nice trail, beautiful and picturesque. There were some decent primitive camp sites. I wish we would have taken our kayaks. There were bathrooms, picnic tables, and charcoal grills in the parking area.

Great hike for new hikers has a few hills to push through but nothing major for those in moderate or better fitness. Nothing to complain about, nothing to brag about.
