The hike in is very easy along the river. Disable access path is also an option. Scenery was very nice also but unfortunately like all these places it was very busy.

Short and easy walk that includes a suspension bridge, graffiti-covered train wreck, and a spectacular view of the river/gorge (just beyond the train). Suitable for all weather.

Bikes are allowed, but it is a narrow trail and you will be dodging a lot of pedestrians.

Snow unlikely. Snowshoes required would be extremely unlikely because a path would almost certainly be beaten down.
