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.

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

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.

This trail is awesome! It has rained a lot the last few days so the river was quickly rushing by right by the trail. We saw a newt and a snake and heard lots of birds chirping. There are many great camping spots along the trail. The waterfall was a nice treat! We brought along our furry friend.

Excellent day hike with your favorite furry friend!! the only part my dog didn't like was the small, but steep staircase at the end. This trail runs next to the water for about 1/2 the trail. seen a couple of harmless baby snakes and a turtle. Sweet trail!

Nice trail along the Clear Fork Creek. Camped at one of a few spots along this trail. Some really nice spots I'd like to go back to later and enjoy the water.

Arrived late but was able to find campsite and set up before it got dark. Doing the trail clockwise, i found an established site right on the river that was flat and had fire ring. Water level was very low but that didn't stop the beavers from slapping the water all night long:) they knew i was there. Next morning it was an easy hike on around the loop and i arrived back at my car quicker than expected. I only remember one hill climb and it was short and easy. Fun trip!

Really a great trail for exploring this area! Great for dogs and terrain is not too difficult so good place to take family. There are several amazing back country Campsites along the trail as well.

Nice hike along the river. Both ends of the loop at the parking area are trashy. 200ft from the parking area is clean. Mini Honey Creek hike with rock houses and house sized boulders. I would recommend if you hike the BSF.
