What a special spot in Custer Park. A fun creed to soak your toes if you can find the right spot to get to the creek. It is so tranquil and beautiful. This is one of those places where you know God Kissed the Earth. Enjoy!

As it has been a very dry season only a small flow down the river but very tranquil to walk over the bridge and along the trail. Lush and green and enjoyable walk out of the heat

This is an area where we need to understand the beauty of nature and enjoy the view. When we traveled through one of the tunnels, I had to stop and gasp at the view ahead of us.

The trail is not strenuous, but the many creek crossings are on boards, so if you are unsteady on your feet, you should choose another trail. We had fun putting our feet in the cool water. The trail is decently wide also. My friend and I were able to walk next to each other and chat while we walked.

Love this trail which takes one all the way up to Center Lake for a swim. The lake is not crystal clear, but reasonable beach and shady areas. Saw an elk on the hike. Many stream-crossings, but lovely hike.

just did this hike in May and was pleasantly surprised that all the creek crossings now have foot bridges. make sure you look around cause not all the bridges are right on the trail. lots of places along the trail to fish so bring a small pole. lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery.

A favorite place to my grandchildren... they request to go every year, one likes to fish and there are places to do that. The others love the water crossings which are numerous. It is shady on a hot day.

What a gem running through the park. It is gorgeous and clean and it offers plenty of drink for the wild life and boy are they there! Coolidge has a wonderful campground and the creek runs right through. Lovely. Try it out!
