Description

Nice trail that follows along the river on the north side; almost entirely shaded. Well kept for first third or so, then some overgrown sections and some trees across the trail. Trail gets narrow toward the end with some steeper drops, then ends at the bridge. Walk across the bridge and have lunch at the beach(s) on the other side and/or go for a swim. Very nice little spot for cooling off! If desired, you can return on the south side of the river (Hidden Valley Trail) which was essentially a road (hot, only partial shade).
