“A nice loop trail through wood with rock houses and arches.”— Cheryl Adelmeyer
Family Friendly No cliffs or dangerous areas in conjunction with a mostly easy to navigate trail makes this good for all.
The nice raised trail leads through woods and crosses the road. This trail is well marked with signs, which seems to be a recent improvement. There are bridges and it seems to be well traveled. I liked it that I didn't have to be hiking in poison ivy - even in a place where poison ivy thrives, there wasn't any to be had on this trail. The hills were not bad, and there were no city noises. We met no one so that was good, too! I did miss a good place to sit and eat lunch, which may be lacking here, but the loop is worthy nonetheless.
There are two highlights along the way; Slave Falls and Needle Arch. Though they can't be reached from this trail, continuing down the Slave Falls - Charit Creek Trail will bring you right past the arch, and to the Slave Falls Spur from which you can detour through a short loop to admire the falls. Simply turn around to return to this trail and the rest of your hike.
