About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]
This is a fun little beautiful trail in the valley along the river. In the summer it’s full of lush green vegetation, in the fall it has stunning vibrant colors and a nice little place to learn to snowshoe or use your micro spikes in winter. There is a small stream crossing that can be kind of hairy in the spring with heavy snow melt. Much easier to cross in summer- early winter. At the end of the trail there is a nice little spot to stop and watch the rock climbers from across the river. There is also a hole in the rock where there used to be a tunnel through the hillside that has since mostly collapsed but can be seen safely from the outside of the opening. Also please, the river looks inviting but stay out! There are strong currents and many drown there.
