Very fun trail that runs along a picturesque creek and has a waterfall at the end. Some slight hills. Took us about 2 hours.
Lovely easy hike. There were no directional signs or trail markers from the parking lot, but the trail is accessed by going through the gate at the top of the parking lot. You'll walk that road a little uphill and find the trail where the road ends. The parking lot was full, but the trail wasn't crowded at all. No leaves on the trees yet, so we could see the river easily, but I suspect once the trees are full, you won't see it easily. There are a couple of river crossings, (rocks slippery when wet!!) so be sure to bring shoes that can handle an accidental dip!
A great trail for an easy hike. Didn't know there was also a longer 10 mile hike off this trial, but we'll come back and give that a go another time.
