  • My friends and I spent a Sunday afternoon here, hiking briefly on the trails that border the river and swimming just upstream of the ford. The footbridge that closes the river was really cool (I'm a sucker for bridges), and it was great that the trails followed the river so closely, though recently flooding made for some.mud here and there. On a different note, if you're into tree identifying, I noticed a plethora of different species that would make your adventures more interesting!
  • Very natural park. They don't groom it, so you see old dead trees in the woods and such. The river is awesome to sit by and listen to also. Plenty of trails too
  • Nice place for a walk. Trails are clean and marked. Not a very difficult trail and no breathtaking views/pictures, but nice place to spend a morning.
  • Great spot for a hike all year long or a nice swim during the warmer months. Lots of trails and areas for hiking and exploring.
  • Nice hiking trails split between upper and lower portions of the park. The upper area has around 10 miles of marked trails and a main swinging bridge that allows you to cross the river. Not much to see beyond the river itself though. Good fit for casual strolls along the river.
