We saw this trail in a brochure in the cabin we stayed in at Packwood. I'm so glad we tried it! We went on a Sunday morning & it wasn't crowded at all. Our 2 sons (7 & 13) and my 70 yr old parents...More
A gentle walk through beautiful forest, crossing a lovely peaceful river on a hanging rope bridge. Good for all abilities and ages. It can be crowded though, both parking and walking, and there is a pinch point at the rope bridge (cross one at a...More
