    We hiked this trail on June 21, 2016. It was hot but a lot of this trail is in shade. It also seemed so short after the other trails we hiked. There were some very nice views of the river and we saw quite a few birds in the area. Even though it was hot, we didn't have a problem with bugs. This was a very easy trail to follow with yellow slashes. I think it would be very hard to get lost on this trail. However, remember the trash can because once you get back to it, there is nothing to tell you to turn to go back to the parking lot. The slashes to the parking lot were red. The kiosk in the parking lot had no information and needed to be filled. It was a nice short, easy trail to hike.

    A pretty short loop trail with a small lake to stop and look at. There was a cool fallen tree over the lake that I climbed up on. The trail was mostly covered in pine straw and leaves.

    This was a good trail. It snakes along the river for awhile. There are a number of different habitats along the way. Bring bug spray.
