Not a great hike, hot dirt road with a lot of broken glass. The end result is a run down old series of pools fed by a natural spring. It's kind of cool but not something I would do again. Better off going to John Dunne bridge for a dip

Can get challenging past the 8-9 mile mark averaging 3-4 mph.....

nice easy hike. Not well marked.

Awesome for trail running, for dogs, and to check out the gorge. Easy downhill down and uphill back.

I am not sure what the other reviewer's experienced, but it was not what we saw. the trail is a dirt road then after walking through someone's property it becomes undicernable as to what is a trail when we tried to stick to the line on the app it said we were at the end only to be looking at dead end. after wondering way off what it said was the way, we found what appeared to be or what used to be a pool and the stream next to it was warm. but looked nothing like the picture or the description. we have used this app many times and this is the first bad experience.

I have thought about this place quite often. It looks a lot different since 1971. It takes me back to another time. Many hour were spent in those pools. I miss those people I was with. Only two of us left. I will be back to visit soon. It says to enter a star rating before submitting this. LOL At night looking up...More stars than could be counted by man. Only god knows how many. In 1971...5 stars
