I hiked the full trail and it's actually over 14 miles. There's a lot of sunny areas so bring lots of water. Don't try the full trail unless you're ready.

Nice trail along stream but it's definitely not 13 miles out and back.

Awsome 3 mile walk....my favorite trail was towards the 2 mile mark...the bird singing, the deer, the breeze was incredible. The weather was perfect cloudy and misty.

Love this place, great walking trails, areas to sit and take a break if needed. Take your own water!! No fountains or any other source provided. Don't forget about you pets too

What a great morning ride. The canopy of trees along the river offered cool and shady ride with the cacophony of birds contributing to your overall experience . The trail continues up through meadows and brush land, so you get it all with a winding, multi elevation ride including steep switchbacks. The naturalists were very helpful to us describing the lay of the trail. The trail maintenance was superb. Clean bathrooms. Can't wait to ride this one in the fall.
