Features River/Creek · Wildlife

Family Friendly Trailhead is easily accessible by car and, provided kids don't mind getting wet, the trail is easy for children to navigate. Make sure they have good good shoes to walk through water in.

Need to Know

In the grassy area, near the end is a guest house that actively hosts guests. Be mindful of people's privacy and stay clear.

Description

Starting from a side parking "pull-off," this trail quickly dips down into the stream's draw and follows the along the north side of the stream for awhile. Be sure to bring a long stick to clear the trail of spiders that like to stretch their webs across the path. The trail is isn't well marked, but is easy to follow nonetheless. Occasionally, there are cement trail posts and bright ribbon markers tied to trees. Halfway along, the trail merges and crosses the stream.

At this point, hikers can easily follow the river or move to the south side of the stream and follow the trail there. The trail on the south side of the stream isn't well maintained, likely because most hikers choose to follow the stream itself. After following the stream for about 200m, the stream widens and gets deeper. On maps this "wider/deeper" area lines up with where two streams come together.

Here, hikers should move to the south side of the steam and follow the trail. Getting close to the end the trail opens up into a grassy area. There is a guest house in the grassy area, stay clear to be mindful of people's privacy. Follow the grassy area across and then back down to the river to find the river swing.

Flora & Fauna

Typical sub-tropical flora & fauna. Spiders like to build their web across the paths and can be difficult to see in dimmer light under the tree canopy. Be mindful of Habu Vipers that like to stretch out on rocks near the water when it gets hotter out.
