Features Birding · River/Creek · Wildlife

Family Friendly Track dinosaurs from long ago as you hunt for their footprints embedded in the river rock.

For trail conditions, closures, and restrictions, check the park website. As most trails either follow the river or require you to cross it, it is wise to check for closures prior to visiting.

Description

This trail begins at the parking lot and follows the curve of the river. An alternate path is provided shortly after leaving the car that takes you through the shaded forest of the river banks. Enjoy some great views and wildlife viewing as you look up Wildcat Hollow.

The trail continues to meander along the banks towards another parking area where, depending on water levels, you can enjoy some dinosaur footprints in the riverbed. This is a nice hike that should be relatively easy for most on a well-maintained path.
