A little muddy, but still had some fall colors. Had the trail to ourselves. Dog got plenty of sniffs in and lots of adventuring in.

Not one of my fav hikes. Overgrown and lost the trail. Pretty butterflies all along but not too much to see. Never found al the caves. Just something that looked like a rock crevice.

Nice, fairly easy trail. The bluff overlooks were the high point - pun intended. Save a little gas in the tank for going uphill coming back out at the end.

Very quiet, few people. No views, but a decent hike that will take less than two hours.

Great trail- a little tougher than we expected just because of the rocky terrain and how easily you can get off trail.

Awesome trail, if you go past the river toward bluffs its not great for little ones, very dangerous cliffs. Beautiful views, muddy and slippery rocks, nice shade. Easy to lose your way, lots of off trail spots make it easy to fall off the trail. Difficult to find caves but I think I know where they are just after river but before big loop, had a four year old so didn’t attempt it!

Around the loop of the trial on the river side you can find 5 caves really easy. You have to go slightly off the trail close to the river banks where the bluffs are. But there’s a trail that leads to the caves that is off the main trail
