I wouldn't really call this a hike but it was nice nonetheless - you take a short (but steep and slippery) walk down to the river. Rock Island seems to be made up of a bunch of little trails so if you want to do some hiking in the park, I'd recommend just doing all the trails. My friend and I did this in a day and ended up with about 7-8 miles total. None of the trails are difficult and most of them are easy to follow plus you get to see more of the park (which is pretty and well-maintained) that way!

The only downside when we went was that they had to close off the gorge b/c of flooding so we weren't able to go into it. I do hope to go back someday when that's not an issue!
