Great trail for a nice quiet hike. Nothing too strenuous. Great for kids though it can be muddy in parts even in the summer and VERY muddy in the rainy parts of the year. There are several places where you can access the river. There is a fork about .5 miles in to avoid what is at least a swamp and often a full pond. On the way back make sure you don't go straight or you will have to come back unless you brought your waders.

yes it might be almost 5 miles long but it is a walk in the park good for beginning hikers dogs and with physical limitations

cute little hike for kids and is along the river, does get muddy and I would advise extra socks with shoes for the comfortable car ride home.

Walked the trail on Saturday 8/13. Was pretty hot out. There was a lot of evidence of recent trail repair on the first half of the trail before the clear cut part. It was kind of confusing after the clear cut where the trail veers off to the left and goes to the river. The right hand trail was not marked on this map and on the way back had to do some trail blazing to find the original trail. Otherwise ok trail and at least was less than 1000 puddles.

Nice and easy trail for kids with fun little water crossings. Pretty scenery along the river. Ran into a couple of horseback riders and they mentioned there have been lots of bear sightings so use cuation on this trail.

This is one of my favorite trails. A nice easy hike along the river. You can hit the river from the trail in 2 or 3 places and fish if you wanted. It can get pretty muddy though and there is 1 or 2 creek crossings so waterproof shoes and a good hiking stick are both helpful. There was one spot about a mile in or so where a tree had blown down but it was easy to get around.

Kids will love this trail.
