Description
Waypoints (0)

Portions of this trail are prone to flooding right after a heavy rain and may close temporarily. Marked perfectly, you can’t get lost (blue). The trail is wide enough to let others pass, it follows the river all the way to some big trees that overhang the water. Once you get to those, the trail ends, and you have to turn back to go back to the parking lot.

The trail is open again, but the day after a heavy rain part of it was flooded and impassable (the part right where it turns away from the river towards the gold dust trail). River level is quite high today! Otherwise it's a nice trail and was very quiet, flat and dry

Nice late fall walk. Paths not too muddy by the river.

The trail is very easy and well maintained there aren’t really any sights to see along the way. If you just getting into hiking and looking for a easy trail for a day hike this one is great. For the more experience hiker you will find it kinda boring.

Flat and pretty. Completely shaded. Watch out for snakes; we saw a young copperhead. When you get to the end, you have the option of hiking inland, and catching part of the turkey trail (which is completely exposed) to get back to the river trail parking. This is when my family did kids age 8 and 10, and my puppy did fine.
