A nice trip through a quiet forest that features moss covered trees, as well as rocks, boulders, and ferns lining the trail on a steep hillside above a babbling creek.
The main trail is good tread for the first mile, until it trail narrows and becomes brushy. Walk high above the creek, which can be heard throughout the hike, but not always seen. The last quarter mile of the trail is just a faint footpath that is more of a bushwhack than a hike. Wear waterproof clothes if you go in the autumn or winter - you will get wet on this hike! But be on the lookout for fungi; they thrive in these conditions.
There is a side trail that descends to the river and forks, giving the option to go either upstream or downstream, extending your trip as you like.
