Reading the reviews, it's clear several different trails are described. There is a fee for this park and it is worth it. There is ample easy parking. most trails are accessable. There are hills and flat areas. The area to see under water is fasinating....More

Nice wheelchair friendly trails paved and wide- many benches with artisan carved backs to view river from. Many picnic tables along the path. Underwater views, cute bridge, lovely scenery, flushing toilets and water spigots along the trails. This is a nice park.

Just off Hwy 26 near Zigzag. Easy trail running alongside the river and under all the beautiful trees. Stops along the trail allowed us to watch the fish.

The trail is very nice and not too difficult. You could tell there is a drought occurring at this time, but there were still some rapids. Very peaceful and a great activity.

The trail started behind our timeshare property but it wasn't very long. The view of the river was just so-so, but it was a nice brief walk.
