Awesome along the water. The tunnels and bridge were especially cool. Pretty sketchy along the water for kids or alone.

Beautiful trail. We made it to the 2nd tunnel. Some steep and slippery parts but well worth it.

The trail itself was good, no real parking lot-only parking on side of road. There’s lots of smashed glass on the shoulder indicating break in happen frequently enough. Trail has zig zag part that is pretty steep and narrow. Our crew had 4 kids ages 4 yo to 10yo. They did okay (better than I expected) on the steep part though. Some trash including the glass, old masks, t shirt, lighter, even a collapsible dog dish-that’s mainly at the front entrance. I had a hard time finding trail on app, I kept looking up “Old Robe Trail”, I’m pretty these are the same trail...

Did this trail today, so gorgeous! Sad about all the slides, but we enjoyed the fun obstacles and climbing over down trees

I did this trail with a friend and my boxer German Shepard mix. My friend knew the trail from before the landslide and once you get past the rocks it’s not a bad trail and it’s so worth the work. It’s absolutely breathtaking. We couldn’t do the entire trail to the bear cave do to my dog being with me but we were sill able to go through the first two tunnels before turning back.

Very easy- more like a nature walk. Easy access to the river which was fun for the dogs. The trail is closed about a mile in. Would be a good one with kids cuz it’s simply and short but still cool. Dogs got fairly muddy

Did this hike on 7/9/2020. The trial was in fairly good condition until we hit the point where it was closed off due to landslides. Fairly steep in spots.

great hike. beautiful views today. the first mile is a very easy switchback that is a great wooded walk. Once you get to the river it is a bit rocky. past the signs, hike at your own risk, there are some old rail road foundations that can be slipery, landslides have made the trail rocky and washed out.

I had a great time up there. is a bit muddy and you need to maneuver around some bug rocks. I didn't go past the first tunnel but it was still a great trail.

Wear boots for mud and with good traction. I didn't go past the waterfall since I just went for a nice quick walk. Cool little trail.

Very nice hike. All the incline is at the very beginning. We went past the signs all the way to the first caves. The rock slide requires some maneuvering to cross. Wouldn’t recommend people who aren’t confident or out of shape to climb through. Go behind at your own risk! Worth it though.

We didn’t go beyond the current trail closure but nice simple family hike, easy access, and fun playing in the river. Down the river a bit was a good Adventure kayaker viewpoint but we only watched them at the more peaceful point on the river on their way to the adventure.

Went yesterday with a friend, my 4 year old, her 3 year old, and my 1 year old who I carried. It was a fun little adventure that was just my 4 year old could complete. Beautiful views of the river and nice mossy forest.

Nice and easy hike. Good for beginners or just getting back into hiking. Like previous reviews hiking boots would be good to wear as there are some muddy and a bit of rocky spots but still easily trekkable in shoes. Went early in the morning so had the hike to ourselves.
