Kids had a great time. Lots of hikes all around this area. We walked down to the water and walked around in it to freshen up.

A beautiful view of the river and a nice trail. There are several route options to consider once you cross the suspended bridge.

I hiked this loop yesterday 7/24/2020 early morning. The trails were peaceful and quiet except for the birds singing. Saw a few hikers every now and then. Lots of pretty birds and I saw the eagle nest on top of the tree on the other side of the river. Didn't see any deer though. The suspension bridge is my least favorite part lol. Will be going back again soon.

Beautiful hike. Lots of shade. The deer are used to people. Very well traveled if you're concerned about being close to civilization. Very easy.

Love every trail near Bowl and Pitcher. Everyone we come across is always so nice. We did find a used needle once but otherwise beautifully kept up.

Great trail we took an off shoot of the trail and went another direction. Was a little busy but everyone was nice when passing. Perfect for bringing your dogs. Amazing scenery.

It's beautiful in spring and love seeing all wild flowers and breath taking views. sound of river and birds. So peaceful people are respectful about giving each other space plenty of trails off the main trail, easy to take when you see others coming your direction. my 6yr old got lil board by the end . but didn't expect her too after months of quarantine. trails are clean well kept.

My family favorite! We walk this all the time since we only live 15 min away. The kids love crossing the bridge and going down by the rocks near the water.

this trail is an easy 2 mile walk. it crosses the bridge over the river and follows along the river. its mostly flat with great views of the river. there are picnik areas near the bridge on both sides. A day pass at Riverside State Park is $10, or an annual one for $35.

Eventually love to do all of Centennial Trail. This portion has some cool little hill training side trails. Nice and close to home. Great for working up stamina for longer and more difficult terrain for us older disabled guys.

It was a pretty hike. However, we had no idea what way to go, and what trail to take.
