    We enjoyed our hike, but I have to disagree with the guide on this one. This is rated an easy trail - I would say it's a moderate. There is a lot of up & down, some of it rocky and rough going. Our family consists of two 43 year olds, one 13 year old and one 10 year old. The guide describes this as "ideal for a family backpack" outing. Like I said - it should not be rated an easy and it wasn't ideal for our family. Families with younger children should find another hike.

    It had rained the day before we went and the trails were more like creeks. We were up to our ankles in mud in places. I would advise you to avoid this trail after rainy conditions. This added to the difficulty, but even if it had been dry I would not rate this an easy.

    We saw lots of good scenery (along the river for some of it) and some wildlife (little orange salamanders) right on the trail.

    We met two guys who had hauled their kayaks for 1.5 miles in to the Diamond Brook bridge crossing. They reported that they were going to kayak down the brook then into the river for some Class 3 (?) kayaking.

    The trails are narrow in place with vegetation thick. Wear long pants.

    Due to the muddy conditions which slowed us considerably, we did not get to the end of the trail. We estimate we got 2.5 - 3 miles in before turning around.
