A tight singletrack up along the bluffs of the river.

Description

River View Trail is one of the prettiest trails in the park! This trail follows up along the bluffs of the river on the west portion of the trail, while the east portion of this trail comes down right alongside the river. You are guaranteed some spectacular views of the river all along this trail, as well as the beautiful woods that this trail follows through.

There are a few portions of this trail that can become steep or have rough ground, but these are short portions are mainly on the western half of the trail while it is traversing the bluffs alongside the river. This is a wonderful trail that most people will be able to run, and both ends have a bridge crossing back over into the campsites, so this trail is easily accessible.
