We have done this hike for years. It is one of our favorite hikes to take visitors because it is not strenuous and has beautiful views of the river and when the wildflowers are in bloom they are spectacular!

This was a beautiful hike. Simple and the perfect length. Took a toddler in a jogging stroller and only needed to pick up the stroller a couple times. Highly recommend!

Some pretty views. However, WAY too long for a beginner. I strongly suggest starting out early in the day so as to avoid traveling in the woods at night. It takes more than 2 hours if you stop periodically to take photos. I also strongly...More

Visited last weekend with two of our boys 7 and 9 years. Great weather. Awesome fall colors. It’s a nice loop with relatively flat terrain. Several places to get your feet in the water safely. Reached by 8 am. Had the trail to pretty much...More
