I walked this trail with my aunt who was fighting pancreatic cancer at the time. It is a nice, easy, and family friendly trail. Check out the PurpleStride walk that is held here every year.

DL Bliss to Emerald bay hike was amazing! So many great views around every corner. We did the one way and got picked up.

Great Hike! My friend and I took our kids (7 children-all under 10 years old) and they did great! The trail was easy enough to follow, with minimal hills. We passed a few mountain bikers and horseback riders along the way, all of which were very kind and patient with our little hiking group! The waterfall was beautiful and refreshing and the kids loved exploring the entire area.

This is definitely an informative walk rather than a hike, but cool to see nonetheless.

Great hike! Fun to cruise the tracks and follow the river.

I walked this last year, haven't gone back yet. it was very nice, kind of long but plenty of nice areas to stop and rest a bit.

Other than a few people fishing, and had attitudes towards the kayakers, it was absolutely great. We go there early so we could get a good parking spot. Had an awesome time going upstream then down a ways. Crystal clear water. A lot of areas to explore. Not boring at all if you are with friends and family having a good relaxing time.....

Nice short hike, old forest and opportunities for bathing. Read the instructions of where to go to avoid getting lost around the camp ground (e.g. keep right).

so... pretty at the start but if the waters low.like it was for us, you'll be doing more time dragging your kayak over rocks than actually kayaking. Also there isn't a good place to get out really at the end, good luck!

Nice trail, enjoyed the view but around mile 3 there was construction on the path I didn't anticipate and had to, sadly turn around

I agree with the other review....not very exciting but different place to walk. I would not travel far to hike this but if in the area a different place to walk and quiet. Some ATV riders but very respectful of me walking with my 2 dogs. Some parts of trail flooded. Lots of deer flies. I did not find the ponds on this trip but plan to return. Lots of butterflies.
