4 narrow switchbacks at very beginning. After that, smooth flat terrain. Trail was closed halfway through due to landslides, so unable to get to the waterfall. Still a great hike close by the river.

The beginning of the trail is great, the switchbacks are steep and narrow. The current closure doesn’t not allow you to see any tunnels, bridges, or waterfalls. The walk along the river edge is very pretty.

Pretty brutal switch backs (mostly cuz I was hiking with a baby on my back) coming up but it was a nice trail not very many people on it. A few trees down so we had to carry the stroller in areas as well.

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.
