Great hike, with fabulous views. Easy to get to and thus pretty popular.

Nice trail system in a beautiful state park. I tried to find the southern route along the river, as suggested, but never found it. still a good morning hike. By noon it was too hot and some parts of the trail have no shade, so go early if you go in the summertime

The exploration of the Centennial Trail above, looping down to the southern section of Riverside Park made an awesome day. No way to be unhappy on this trail. The river is beautiful down there. I think I like the southern area better than Bowl & Pitcher, which seems to get more attention - perhaps because of the huge rock formations and cool bridge. Note, to experience what I mean by awesome, you have to go considerably farther south than the recommended route. Look at my recording for reference. It's a longer hike, but well worth it. Bring stuff to swim in or at least for getting your feet wet.

Great trail for taking the whole family on. It is very shaded which made it great for a hot summer day. Absolutely beautiful area. The only down side was the trail was not always clearly marked and without my phone I would not have known which way to go.

Pros: best park in the county. Spectacular views when the river is high and the sun is out. Well marked.

Cons: crowded with families, kids and non-athletes. Parking was expensive compared to area trails. Cliffs were dangerous.
