This an easy and fairly level trail. It is easy to hike and has some very good views of the peaks and has several access points to the river.

Well paved path with beautiful views make this easy walk a top things to do when visiting the park. It is also short so perfect for a hot day. Still pack lots of water though since no shade if sun is up.
