Hiking

There is no trail that I could find at all. Sure you could walk through the mud and weeds along the river but I don't consider that a trail by any stretch. Nice river though good for kayaking or what not but NOT HIKING.

This is a great place to fly fish and kayak but not for hiking. There is no trail, and the rock patch next to the water only goes so far until it’s completely submersed under water. I rated 4 because of the lack of the trail but we are a fly fishing family so we were really happy about the find!
