The trail starts on the far side of the bridge from the parking lot and goes up the river. The section going down the river from here is a barrier free trail. The trail is described from lower trailhead going east. The trail parallels the river, first winding along the river bank like a gentle roller coaster. This part of the trail is in great shape and fun as well. In just past 3 miles you arrive at Bolt Camp. There is a cabin here maintained by a forest service worker in his spare time. Just past Bolt Cabin there is a small landslide and a larger one a little distance up. Hike a bike can be done over the slides if careful. In a couple more miles the trail climbs up to the bluff and winds along above the river. The upper section of the trail goes past the Lower Falls Campground. This trail gains more elevation than it looks like on the map but it's worth it. Considered by most as one of the best low elevation trails in the state. This trail has become famous not only from word of mouth but has been featured in several magazines and calendars. Motorized use is not allowed on this trail. It is part of the C to C Route. The trail goes along high cliffs, especially in the falls area. The beauty of the area is awesome and so are the drop offs. Use extreme caution, along all areas next to the river. There are some areas worth walking where the trail is narrow. See web site at ebiketrails.com
