Fun trail. Little muddy, but not terribly. Passed a couple groups of bikes, maybe eight bikes in total. Trail itself was maybe moderate difficult, at most, but definitely wouldn’t give it a difficult rating. Would hike it again for sure. Seems like a great tubing or swimming spot in the summer!

Although I did not like having to cross the bridge prior to beginning the hike, I did enjoy several other features. I would consider this trail a solid "moderate" hike. It had quite a few inclines that were rocky and the leaves made the footing a bit more difficult than I would have liked. But I did enjoy the wildlife (deer, beavers, blue jays), the flowing water and the open landscape on the back half of the climb. Overall, I enjoyed the trail!

Great trail! Muddy but not too bad

somewhat muddy. decent trail system

Very nice hike. One lovely setting after another. Follow the northbound through-trail for the first 4 miles, then the southbound for the remainder. Total time was 3 hours for 6.8 miles. Had an awesome burger at Woodstock Inn afterward.

First half of the hike along the river is great, 5/5. The second portion goes through an unmarked and overgrown meadow that left burrs all over our dogs. If you do this trail I recommend you turn around when you get to the northern tip instead of making the loop.

Beautiful trail. Well marked. Has a little of everything: river views, beaches, streams, a quarry/pond, spookiest old car wreck, train sounds in the distance, quiet woods! Easy access. A great loop!

Nice walk in the woods. Pretty views of the river. Not busy or crowded at all. Sounds of train whistles and lots of bird songs.

Not challenging, but peaceful. Definitely overgrown in many places. A few cool things along the way (old cars/little bridges). Look for tags ahead on trees at Ts. Not marked real great. I'd do again, but not for years.

Had to use map to stay on trail and lots of mosquitos near the river. But a nice hike nonetheless.

nice views of the river for about 40% of trail. didn't see what made it hard other than it was difficult to find some turns.

Try to stay away from the lower parts of the path near the river as they are very overgrown and hard to follow. Otherwise, pretty good trail IF you have this app or know your way around. Paths are not well marked.
Update: 2 days after the hike our dog got some type of bite or infection from the tall grass. Definitely not worth the hike. Advise to stay out of the grassy area!

A bit more grown-in than expected, but some good elevation changes and really peaceful areas.

nice, easy hike. poorly marked in places. recommend downloading the map.

Awesome trail, but poorly marked. I got lost and had to back track twice. Aside from that the trail is beautiful and the burgers at the Woodstock Inn are amazing.

Agree with previous comments that this is not a hard trail. Maybe moderate. Went with my dogs and it was great!

Great walk along the river! Definitely download the map and keep on your GPS, because there are a few spots you might miss. There is a path/road you take at the midpoint is through a clearing and it's not marked - the grass was knee high so we almost missed it. The best part about this hike was that no one was on the trail and you can make it shorter or longer very easily.

We enjoyed this hike but would not label it hard. There were some ups and down but nothing strenuous. Like other people said, the markers are oddly placed (you get the marker before a split so we did not know to go to the left or right path). It took 2 hours to walk the loop.

Enjoyable moderate hike with a few hills, water crossings, one little waterfall. This was a beautiful spring day. My hike was about six miles. G Ood training hike

This trail is nice mix of riverside flat and moderate uphill through the woods. Lots of visual surprises along the way. The trail is shared by bike riders, horse riders, and hikers. Everyone was super friendly. Was the least busy trail I’ve ever been on in the park.

Nice hike. Not too challenging. Some nice views of the river. Distance is more like 6.75 if you park in the lot by the Woodstock Inn.

Hiked this one as a 7 mile trek. Part of the trail follows the river. It's not a difficult trail, but maybe a bit harder than moderate. End your hike with a beer and burger at the Woodstock Inn.

Hiked this trail as a 6-mile loop by starting with the ridge trail right away, returning on the trail close to the river bank, taking the trail under the power line as the connecting trail of the first two.

I agree with others’ comments about the difficulty level. Between moderate and hard, I think the trail should be rated as moderate.

Parking can be found at the railroad crossing, Hike across the bridge and make a left on closed paved road. Shortly on left is a white marked trail. I think called crossover trail. This will bring you to the start. Trail makes turns that are poorly marked. I was talking and took the obvious trail and got lost 3 times :) glad I had my GPS. Trail is pretty easy overall.
