Camp at top of first Vista. You will not regret it. Great campsite tucked away off to the left if you keep an eye out for it

Cool rock formations and gorgeous rapids, including at the bridge. Late afternoon provided great light for photos of the cliffs from the bridge. The washout was still there at 1.1 miles on 11-13-20. Use hiking poles and tree branch support and you should be fine. I would not suggest hiking this trail after a lot of rain.

Many of these trails are used for horseback riding.

The stone on the trail is indeed frustrating; we took this with our two 9 year olds though and they really enjoyed it. I was starting to get a little nervous about the view towards the end of the hike as we continued to shed elevation, but creeping down the stone face of the hill at the end of the horse camp provided an outstanding view of the river valley and stone outcroppings that made the trek quite worth it.

HikingWashed out

Nice hike by the river and on the mountain ridge, beautiful forest. One small section (30 ft?) of the trail was washed out, but it is still doable with care. Moderate in some spots, lots of areas look more like stairs of rocks or roots, but very nice. Massive rocks!! Sandy in sections. It was dry today, I can see how it could be more challenging under different weather conditions. Did it with my small dachshund and he loved the scents of the forest! Lots of nice pictures, too. Don’t imagine an incredible destination once you make it to the bridge- it’s one of those that the fun is in the journey. Still, the view from the bridge is incredible too!

if you don't want to do all of it i suggest beginning at divide road intersection with John Muir trail. this cuts 0.7 mile off of descent into massey branch drainage and puts you 1.7 miles from Rock creek drainage and good camping spots along the creek. several excellent spots along rock creek to camp. this a good out and back for old farts and out of shape folks. rate it on the easy side of moderate.

HikingGreat!

At around the 1 mile point, the trail is almost impassable due to the sand being washed out leaving a very narrow ledge to walk on. The alternative was a very slippery detour that is dangerous due to mud and steepness. This section really needs some work on it. After getting past that, the rest of the trail was well maintained and a beautiful hike. Hopefully the dangerous spot will get some repair soon.

Did the trail today and the weather was great, the trail is in good shape and the water level was perfect for some fishing.

Very nice trail, well maintained except for the first couple of miles, several blow downs in that area. Ended up being closer to 14 miles instead of the 12.4 stated. Probably would have even more views during winter. Will be coming back!

Went the last week of August. Very humid. Not many bugs though. Loved the part up to the bridge. The last pit of the trail was kind of weird. Appears they are doing something with the water piping????....so there was a lot of construction stuff on the last 1-1.5 miles. I’d say it was a mild-moderate hike. A few inclines that only lasted a few minutes.

A great trail from Leatherwood Ford to the O&W bridge. The trail is well maintained, the bridge is beautiful, and if you are willing - lots of good swimming holes to be found.

Maude’s crack is awesome! From the lower side of the loop, the trail isn’t marked too well though. No business creek is nice. Some old home places and cemeteries are cool to look at also .
