1/21/23: Three generations of my family hiked this trail. We weren't sure about the end point so we turned the 1.8 mile trail into 2.0 miles. The creek we followed was beautiful and we had a great time.

Very scenic, quiet creekside trail. I would classify it easy to moderate with roots, rocks and slight elevation changes.

Never again. Trail is tagged as easy but there are way too many roots & rocks. The trail is also not bike friendly.
Hang Tight!
