Beautiful, towering trees are the highlight of this trail. With plenty of shade, this is a fairly peaceful walk for most of the hike. You will encounter downed trees every so often, so there may be a bit of climbing and scrambling to get around them. There are even a few places where you can walk inside the core of the tree.
The first part of the hike is an ascent, followed by a quick descent along Zizag Trail #1. After that, it is a mostly flat walk along the river, back to the trailhead.
Parking is free along the main Newton B Drury Parkway road.
