Great hike. Hike back out is killer if you’re going backwards lol. Plenty of little cut throughs to the river to picnic or swim.

the trail was a lot of fun but a lot of it was up hill which is fine and there was a couple of deep holes on the trail and not very kid friendly.

Lots of wash out from all the recent rain...

This place was good:) although the road takes u to some private road it brings you to a right place to start after you park your POV(private owned vehicle). The place starts off with off road trail that has road closed bar/sign. The previous review is good review but its a LOOP trail! Before you start there is a board of sign, map, caution, all good trash on it

Very poorly marked. We figured out we went the wrong way after it was too late. When you begin the trail after you park stay to the LEFT. I’m sure we will be back to hike the correct trail next time. Kind of a bummer.

The river is fantastic. Steep climb out once you get down to the river, but well worth it.

Second time there and we found the river! There is a sign at the beginning of the loop that is extremely misleading....ignore it as it will guide you right off the river loop trail. It points to a different direction with a picture of horses, hikers and bikers. At any rate, the loop starts and ends at a big oak tree in the middle. Stay on the narrow path and you're on the way to the river and sand bars.

Hike was beautiful. So much greenery right along the river! Water was warm also, with several small beach areas along the trail. Only negative was the bugs! (And I got stung by a bee)

This was a great hike. The walk along the river was one of the prettiest we have seen. The views and sounds felt like you were a million miles away. Be sure and get a Land Use pass or take ur fishing/hunting license. This is state land and they are checking for the permit. It helps support the upkeep. You cannot buy it on site.

This was a fun hike with my Wife as I celebrated my 61st Birthday today with her in Gods Country. 4-8-2018

*LAND USE PASS REQUIRED
I find it interesting that I only came across one other reviewer who mentions this. Land use passes are required and cannot be purchased onsite. Paying to park in a state park is reasonable but there are too many free trails close by to bother with this one and the cost associated.

One of my favorites. Beautiful river.

A nice, quiet hike with awesome spots to view the river. Not much scenery outside of the river, but once you get to the river, it’s worth it. Prepare to get a pretty good work out.

Nice hike to river. Went counter clockwise . Beginning of trail could be marked a little better.

One of my favorite hikes in this area- beautiful with inclines. A bit odd entry, though, as the parking area doesn’t give clear sign of entrance. Walk down the gravel path to first fork. Go left. Walk to the second fork and go right. BUT take left at the next fork. Look for the blue blazes. If you don’t see them, your headed in the wrong direction.

Great trail with a gorgeous river that's big enough to swim in in the summer months. I'm definitely going back. it was a very easy hike.

Great hike. Recommend you go clockwise due to very steep section down to the river. Easier to go down than up. Very cold today (12 degrees--dog loved it!) but looks like a great summer hike and river swim.

This was a gorgeous hike with so many different terrain traverses. The river was incredibly beautiful and if there is a down side it was wanting to constantly sneak off trail to river gaze.

We did have a beginning back track when we took a right fork early on thinking we were at the beginning of the loop. Checking the AllTrail map got us straightened out and we were back on track 20 minutes later. Stay left out of the parking lot till the big tree that splits the trail. The blue trail blaze begins at this point and is easy to follow. We went left and had no regrets. Its a fairly balanced trail and there will be areas of moderately strenuous climb going either way.

At the parking lot we had to ask if we were in the right place. It had a placard for hunting, fishing, and land use passes without much other helpful info. Fortunately we happened upon friendly locals that confirmed the trail and it's open access state.

If I lived locally I would do this hike every day. It is Nature at its finest!

Amazing walk going counter clockwise on the trail, just be prepared for the steep up hill back.

A light traffic trail with nice loop to the river. Part of the trail is a long open field/road which is a little underwhelming, but overall a decent trail for a nice afternoon hike. Had my GSD off leash and she loves the trail. Great for dogs.

Easy trail. Part is just a road. The part along the river is a trail. Only a few places you can actually get out on the rocks in the river to picnic or lay out.
