great trail, but there was a detour. The original trail does not have any markings and that could be confusing.

Hiked May 2017. You have to take a small side trail (well trafficked obviously by the smooth dirt and lack of vegetation growing on the path!) to get to the river access. Side trail branches off an intersection where the trail is marked with a laminated sign tacked to a tree. Loved this trail. River access was beautiful and serene. Besides the river access it is a cool trail going through the forest, some ups and downs but nothing too strenuous. Spider Woman II is actually only a 2.2 miles loop but you have to take the Midlands Mountain Trail from the parking lot to get access to the Spider Woman II trail so that is what brings the hike total to 3 miles. Would definitely recommend!

great trail

We tried to do this one in April on a Friday and the gates back to it were closed, said they are only open to the back Saturdays and Sundays so make sure you check. You can get back there but it is about a 1.5 road walk to the beginning of the trail head. We did a different one instead but will go back to do this one. We liked the area.
