Great starter trail to get back in shape. We were under the forest canopy. Sign posted says no swimming yet it was ignored by a group of teenage girls. Quite a bit of trash washed up in the river.
Did see a Fairfax police on a motocross bike, glad to see him.
Lots of dogs that were NOT on their leash as mandated by law... explains the few dog poops we came across our hike.
the only trash can was at the parking lot.
Good thing was the map along the trails.

Easy scenic trail. Carry swim cloths :) there are no trash cans so be mindful to carry a bag for trash.
Unfortunately saw litter on the sides.
