It flooded and you couldn’t do most of it because the water was too high

My girlfriend, my dogs and I all loved this trail. A wade across the initial river and a short hike brings you to a beautiful little swimming hole. Plenty of shade and even some beachy area down the trail to the right, before you cross the dam. For those who don’t want to cross running water two feet from a drop off, lol. Can be pretty busy on the weekends.

Great decent short hike with a nice swimming hole. To get to the other side of the hike you do have to cross the river. The crossing is before you hit the “ trail ends” marker. It took us a bit to figure it out.

Looks like a nice trail with a great swimming spot. However the trail has been eroded by rushing water and the creek is uncrossable.

Nice local swimming pond. Don't be fooled by online guides as I was - this does not connect to Greenbelt and breakthrough to Hill of Life. would definitely frequent as a swim hole if I was a local.

Nice trail in the city, more or less. Started out at the bridge on Lost Creek Blvd. Took off my shoes and socks and waded into the creek. Word of caution: if your feet aren't really toughened the crossing in knee high water while stepping on stones can be painful. Keep your shoes on or get some beach shoes. After the crossing the trail is nice. Hiking along with the bluffs above and the creek close by is very nice. At the turn around point you wade across the dam to the loop that goes back to the bridge. I didn't attempt this because the water was swift going over the dam and some young men ahead of me were having a little difficulty. If you fell you might be swept over the dam. The scenery is awesome. The trail wasn't heavily trafficked and the other hikers I met were nice.
