This is one of my first hikes. It was beautiful with plenty of trees and waterfalls. The view of the river was awesome. We brought our dogs too. You do need to watch for poison oak and ticks though.

Had an awesome experience on this hike! First, the road just to get to the parking lot was not passable for my honda civic. I do not advise anyone to bring a little car because you will have to walk 2.5 miles down to the bridge. The walk to the water was mostly down hill and the walk back was not too bad walking uphill. The shore was easily accessible too

Lots of water on the trail and on the creek .... at the split, take the mountain bikers trial down versus the hiker trail .... the creek is impassible on the hiker trail unless you're Evil Knievel.

Great trail for early season hikes!

This just might be our new favorite trail. This hike was AMAZING! The views were breathtaking and the trail was wonderful. There was so much to see and do. I highly recommend this hike. It seems like it was pretty popular (full parking lot as we left), but if you go in the morning it isn't overly crowded.

Great hike. Loved the river view from the trail. Only downside was hearing gun shots during the hike.

This is actually stevens trail South...did it this weekend..few trees over the trail...had to do 3 waterfall crossings(raging) trail is in pretty good shape in most spots....we got soaked..and it snowed mid way through the hike...waterfall crossings were very intense this time of year..last part of the trail is sketchy..if your in shape and like a challenge...it's AWESOME..if you want an easy hike probably not the best for that...the locals are super nice...the trail dog story is real they went with us...we loved it...but we're fairly avid hikers...that like a challenge..probably alot easier in the summer...for sure a moderate trail. highly recommend...trail needs work in a few spots..be prepared to climb over some stuff..being trekking poles.

Love it, has an amazing view! Great way to spend your Sunday morning

Such a beautiful hike but I don't think I went through it all because I couldn't find the water! Lol
