Great short drive from town. Definitely worth getting out of the car and hiking around a bit. I flew my drone around and got some great shots!

4.5 miles or so, Cool shade, walking through the forest, beautiful views of mountains, awesome roaring river, wild flowers strewn around meadows, kayakers to watch, bridges to cross and mostly LEVEL!! It doesn't get any better for a great walk! Look for Icicle Gorge Trail!

The water was fast and high. Worth stopping. Nice place for a couple of pictures. Spring melt off. The pull offs were convenient but required a little caution on reentry.
