Description
Waypoints (5)

This trail is only a loop if you return to your car by walking along the road for the last quarter mile. If you prefer to stay along the trail, follow the route shown on the map and hike it as an out and back. This trail starts in a dense forest full of moss small streams. As you continue upwards towards the ridge of the gorge, the forest turns into deep groves of laurel. Once you reach the top, there are endless rocks you can climb on to view the river below. Be careful, as there are some holes near the rocks that have been covered with leaves and are easy to slip into. Do not park along the side of the road as cars commonly get towed from here.

Really enjoyed this late afternoon hike with my daughter. We are from NorCal and often stop and smell the roses so to speak. The views kept us coming back to the rim over and over again. The foliage was spectacular too. If I could give this hike a 6 I would!!

HikingGreat!

This is a great hike and fairly easy. I love the rhododendron tunnels, and, of course the high point is reaching Diamond Point where you can see much of the "endless wall" as well as the bridge. The views of the river are really good. Be sure to take the numerous spurs out to the edge of the mountain. The river is not visible from the main trail.

Great trail, beautiful sights! My wife and I walked it yesterday with our two dogs - plenty of spots to pull over and share the road! I am very overweight and on a journey to get more healthy! I have always loved the outdoors and this trail was a challenge for me but I loved every second of it!

Rock climbing

LOVED it! Even without the stellar views it’s a gorgeous hike, the forest is just so beautiful and the scenery changes several times so it’s definitely not boring. The trails are very well maintained, with sturdy bridges and steps where needed. There are spots all over, along the cliff side or in the forest where you can put up a hammock and relax for a while. Overall an easy trail, some hills here and there but pretty suitable for all ages. And then there are gorgeous cliff side views looking down over the mountains and the rivers below, you might get to see people rock climbing too. 100% recommend and definitely hiking it again.

Great hike. Can get muddy but very passable. Lots of overlooks to see the river. Worth looping on the road rather than doing the out-and-back.

Great trail, this was the second time I’ve hiked it. I’ve not done the complete loop yet, I’ve enjoyed the out and back hike though. For the views it’s definitely a easy trail

Excellent easy trail. Lots of canyon view points to take breaks at. The rhododendrons made the trail like a tunnel at points plus a nice stream to cross a couple times. The trail is not 2.4 miles unless you shuttle. However a trail is forming just off the road which makes this a 3.1 mile loop.
