Awesome! Starts out easy and gets to moderate, I would say. Lots of shade. Great swimming hole about .5 mile in. If you plan on getting to the waterfall, it is another hot .5 mile after the first 2 (downhill paved). The waterfall is spectacular and you can feel the cool mist on your skin. Eat your lunch there and prepare for a hard and hot half mile uphill hike. After that it is a downhill gravel with lots of shade. A half mile before you finish, jump off the rock and swim in the cool refreshing river.

We are virgin hikers and went with our 3 kids ages 8, 5 and 8 mos. My kids are TROOPERS and I'm amazed they made it. I probably wouldn't have put them thru it if I knew it was 5 miles round trip. They forgot about the difficulty as soon as we got to the swimming hole.

We burned 1220 calories and I am sore everywhere as of the next day.

Perfect for folks who enjoy an easier stroll by a beautiful river. Would have liked a bench or two along the way.

We got confused where the trail head started but had our dog off leash and found some great areas in the river to dive into.

Beautiful area, lots of elevation change. Well maintained and marked trails, and lots of beautiful sights. We had fun on a 5 mile loop.
