Heavy trail traffic, stressed out parents, and people not very mindful of their trash and animals. I stepped in dog crap not once but twice on trails #5 and #9. And to top it off, as I and a few other folks were exiting trail #3 some kids wading in the creek decided to start throwing rocks up at the wall above us. A guy and his young son behind me were almost struck by one of the rocks that hit the trail. Bad day at the park for sure.

Lots of obstacles to walk around but other than that beautiful river to kayak!!

Trial 3 was amazing. Trial 2 is ok. 6,7,11 are super short. Trial 6,7 are neat. Trail 1 is lame.

This is a very good beginner trail. I actually got turned around once and back tracked about a mile but other than that I really enjoyed the trail, there's 2 campsites marked and a 3rd that isn't marked it's a very peaceful trail, highly recommend it.

By far one of the most beautiful places to hike! Trail #3 is rated rugged due to most of the trail being streams and waterfalls running over boulders and rock. I took my kids, one of them 5yrs, and it's easy to navigate with watershoes. Definitely a must see place!

Over all the trail was a lot of fun it is just over 12 miles. Campsite 2 is actually two campsite. Both with a fire ring and picnic table. They are about 200 yards apart. Campsite one has a. Bush-crafted shelter on it not much room for a tent and trees for hammocks are almost non existent. This is a great trail for firs timers trying to figure out if they wanna get into backpacking, or even kids. I am a pretty big dude and I would have no problem doing this trail in one sitting. It is an externally well marked trail lots of road signs for the bikers. The lake is right there if you need to filter water. Although getting down to it can be a bit tricky. It was a really good trail just not a lot to see. If you want grand views and vistas this is not the trail for you. You you want a leisurely walk in the woods this trail is perfect

Nice, scenic 10-mile trail for trail running/hiking. Some switchbacks make it more of a moderate trail. I hiked/ran this in 2 hours 45 minutes. Great workout in beautiful solitude.
