Wonderful trail that is easy to access and can be used for many different activities: biking, walking, running, or a picnic (lots of spots near the river). Very flat with a nice, wide trail. More of a “walk” compared to a “hike.” Lovely views of the river and some mountains in the distance.

Beautiful area. Pretty sure it was just me my dog and the bears. 2nd stream crossing was to much for my pup. Road is closed about a mile before the trailhead.

Great trail. Good for families or bikes or people who may not want something super hard, but still want some cool views. Flat and has cool paths off the main trail that lead down to the river for some cool pics. We were from out of state and it was easy to find, park, and we enjoyed our time on the trail.

Only made it about a mile in due to fallen trees but it was lovely in the meantime

If you're into hiking for the sake of hiking, 5/5. But, there isn't much to see here other than views if the lake that frankly don't rival what can be seen from the road. So many better trails with more to discover in the area.

easy, wide, flat trail with plenty of picnic tables, benches, doggy bag stations, and pit toilets about halfway along. perfect for a nice easy walk with nice river views and some mountain glimpses. shared trail with bikes so keep an eye out. there are several offshoots that will take you down to the river's edge. fun to explore and snap some photos.

A beautiful trail with a mix of trees, shrubs, wildflowers and lake views. Recent micro storms left the trail littered with downed firs/ponderosas. Cleared up to 1.5 miles from TH. After that, be prepared to climb over them. We counted 16 in 1/2 mile before we turned around when the trail looked more like a gauntlet. Great short hike until that point for a workout and to admire and respect the power of Mother Nature.

Great trail! So beautiful! Views of the lake, just gorgeous! May 10, 2020. Trees down. Forest service has cleared to about mile 1.5. Then from 1.9-2.2 a lot of trees down (which forest service has not got to yet). If you push through past that, great after!! Just jumping over a downed tree once in a while. We hiked in 3.5 miles.

on Swan River Trail

I could not have picked a better trail for myself. I am a 62-year-old man and have not done much hiking. I do walk but there is clearly a difference between walking and hiking. The trail is wide, It begins with an initial incline that pretty much flattens out. As you were heading up and through the trail the Swan River is on your right the entire hike. The sound of the rushing water crashing against the rocks was just amazing. The further you go with the hike the closer one becomes to the River. There looks to be some very good fishing spots. Had I not had my dog I would’ve liked to have tried to skip a line and see what I come up with. The only negative that I have is not the trails fault. It is posted everywhere the dogs must be on a leash. There is always one knucklehead who does not think the rules apply to his dog. Be prepared in the event the dog comes charging.

Great, easy trail for the whole family. Access to the river at many points along the way.

No trailhead made this difficult to find. Once I got on the trail, I found it had an abundance of blown down trees blocking the trail.

Trail is clear about 0.8 miles in. From there the trail is covered in trees every so often. Not a bad trail if you don’t mind crawling under, climbing over, or walking around +100 fallen trees.

More of a nature walk than a hike. Trail is very well maintained, certainly wheel chair accessible. Lots of picnic benches along the trail. Several mini trails that lead down to the water along main trail. Dogs are allowed. A very peaceful walk in nature.

Lots of trees still down blocking trail. Forestry service was on site cleaning up. Should be all cleared by April 1 2020. There is also a easy 1 mile loop that goes down to the lake that is good for kids. Nice views of the lake and lake access.

Great trail for young kids. A lot of blown down trees but you can make it over/under/around them.

Great walk, there were plenty of people out social distancing themselves. It was a great way to relax

this is a good easy walk not very long and you are above the river the entire time

Due to massive wind storms we’ve had in the last year there are a lot of trees down. About 0.8 mile in, the trail is impassable as of February 7th 2020

We randomly stumbled upon this trail and absolutely love it! We hiked 1.1 miles in and turned around from there. Would be a great running trail as well. Had to watch out for horse poop though.

The road to access the NAPA Point Trailhead is across from the Goat Creek State Forest offices on Hwy 83 South. The road is not properly signed and is difficult to find where to go. Recommend going to the office at Goat Creek and getting good directions. The last 5 miles of the road is in very poor and Rocky condition.
