Lovely walk along the river. The bridge is flooded, so wear waterproof boots.

This is a very pleasant, easy, short trail. The view of the rapids at the end is excellent. It probably would have got four stars on a warm day as I enjoy everything twice as much in the sun. It would need to be longer with more excitement to be five stars. The bridge at the start is currently flooded and you have to go across stepping stones to get into the trail.

Need to cross the covered bridge which has about 4 in inches of water in it but there are stones and wood placed strategically so just need to hold on and have good balance. beautiful hike!

Some snow, some puddles. Crossing the bridge the biggest obstacle, have boots/waterproof high hiking boots for the ice and deep puddles, up over my low cut Keens. Always have extra socks and shoes in the car for when you return!

Nice morning stroll along to river. Lots of deep water on the bridge near the beginning of the trail. Might want waterproof boots to get across the bridge. Over all nice hike.

It was very pretty, and simple trail. Never saw the cave that is supposedly there. And got to a point where is got very narrow and needed a rope to get down. But would do it again and picnic at the beach!

HikingGreat!

This is a wonderful trail for an easy, mostly flat hike. Not paved. While crossing the bridge is a highlight, further down the trail about 3/4 of a mile is a smooth, rocky beach area that is perfect for a brisk swim. Bring your swim suit. It's a fun, safe swim. Very enjoyable hike. Lots of parking. The driving directions included on this description were accurate.

Hiking

I hiked this with 3 fellow mamas and our pack of 10 kids. We enjoyed it so much! The trail has lots of spots for kids to explore and climb. When we finished the hike we ate lunch down on the sandy beach and the kids played in the water. While we were eating, a bear cub came out of the woods on the other side and hung out by the river. We knew his mama must be close by, so we cleared out fairly quickly, even though it was so amazing to see a bear in the wild. To fellow hikers, be aware that there is a bear cub (with a mama we assume) in the area.

Hiking

While the trail follows the river, the river is not in view at all times so while there are moments of great views it's not the most scenic hike over all. It's a good family hike and the kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks. The best part of the hike was we went down to the water in one area so the kids could play in the water. There is a great swimming area right near the parking lot. The bathrooms are apparently not being maintained right now and were revolting so plan ahead.

HikingGreat!

The trail was very scenic. Most of the trail has plenty of space to pass or pull off to let people go by and maintain a reasonable distance. The trail follows the river which is beautiful. It is a little cooler which is nice if it hot outside. Great walk/hike. A few spots you have to navigate a bed of rocks but easy enough for all skill levels.
