The play and picnic area parking is only open Monday - Friday, but you can park outside the gate in a nice lot and hike the trail anytime (as long as it is not closed for downed trees, etc.)

This trail is we’ll maintained but pretty easy. It’s more of a stroll than a hike. Listening to the river is nice. Not much traffic...good outing if you are looking for an easy family out and back.

Good time. You can hear the river while hiking and can see it through the dreams at different points. Fun and easy hike. Very flat.

Very easy trail and very relaxing. Went on a Thursday and there wasn’t any foot traffic which was super nice. Don’t expect to get close to the water cuz I couldn’t figure it out. Keep in mind, the parking opens at 9am and closes at 4pm. Overall a great trail and only took a little over 2 hrs with a few stopping

Nice wooded trails, some wide and some skinny single ledge trails. Lots of wooden plank low to the ground bridges, mushroom and slugs. It was foggy today so we didn’t get to see much in way of the river. The Rim trail ends and then you have to connect to the River trail to actually go down to the river. Total for the 2 trails as a out and back starting at the park will be 10 miles. These trails don’t bring you a view of the flood control dam either. Today. We hiked the trail where Rim and River meet. It was roughly 4 miles and easy.

Well marked, woodsy trail, mostly shady. Beautiful! some pretty long hills in places. I'll definitely be doing it again.

This hike was okay. Not many views besides in the beginning. The trail is slightly over grown as well. Overall, it was a pretty easy hike besides a couple steep portions.

The actual rim trail has some compact snow and ice In places, but still manageable. The app has you stopping after walking all the way down a forest road, which is the start of the river trail. I went on, it was another 3 miles to the end. That trail will be better in the spring after the snow melts. Overall, a nice little trail to hike. The day was absolutely beautiful to hike on too!

Decent maintenance, okay signage, snow covered with mud in some spots. Can tell it will be a wet mess once the snow melts. Easy 2 mile hike (unless you add the River trail too) on narrow path.

This is a fun family hiking trail with just a couple of short hills. There are a couple of view points on an otherwise wooded trail. Great for just a walk in the woods. The trail was in great shape with just a bit of brush encroaching in a few places. Bugs weren’t bad hiking mid morning.

Three generation family hiking trip with the youngest being 5. Some muddy spots and quite a few puddles across the trail and even a couple spots with running water flowing across the trail, had waterproof hiking boots and it was great. Some nice viewpoints and it was nice to hear the running water nearby. Enjoyed my time in nature!

I hiked both the Mud Mountain rim trail and also the river trail down to the river. The river trail is really just a road near the end of the rim trail that leads down to the mud flats along the banks of the White River. The views of the White River from the rim trail are limited, if you are going to hike this it's much more interesting to hike down the road to the river itself. There you will find some massive collections of jetsam captured by massive floating steel tubes chained together. This must be fascinating to see when the White River is in flood stage.

Rim trail has beautiful views of the White River. Nice shaded woodland trail.

It was alright! Good, brisk walk through the trail! I had my kids with me and was hoping the trail offered more in the way of views to keep them engaged and excited about going out hiking!

I dog and I hiked this today along with the White River trail. As other reviewers noted, it is overgrown in many areas. I recommend long sleeves and long pants as there are thorny bushes along the trail. It was a nice hike as long as you don't mind a narrow trail.

As others said, trail was overgrown in areas and not overly scenic, but a nice hike with the dog.

About 2.5 miles in the trail is quite overgrown. Needs some Trail love.
