We took this trek a 2nd time. Our last time here was April 2012. We brought our bikes this time instead of just walking. Mountain bikes would work best, but as long as you don't have a road bike you can manage. We packed a small raft in case we would not be able to get over to see the lager of the 3 waterfalls. This Spring we were able to jump on rocks over the river to make it over. On the way it's about 3 miles in with a few steep climbs. This trail is used by horses as well, so it can be bumpy due to their hooves after it's been muddy. 4 wheelers would be great here as well. Beware of snakes, but they are usually only out when it's sunny.
This was a great little hike. The trail itself, we believe is closer to 7 miles round trip. It is fairly flat, and, though a bit rutted, this would make a fantastic trail run. We saw wild deer and snakes and some old bones on our way to the falls. Great hike for the early part of the season. In the summer, being in the open, we imagine the heat would be terrible.
