  • Great landscape, just floating along on the river. Be cautious on the sun and don't forget your sunscreen. Overall, just a nice smooth day.  more »
  • Great 6.5mi hike which is pretty close to home. Trail is fairly well marked. I will be back to trail run it.
  • Awesome place to go hiking. It’s about 6 miles and takes about 3.5 hours to complete. Be aware of the blue paint marks on the trees. They’re a little faded.
