This is a beautiful hike work some water crossings and a couple of rock scrambles. Start on the south side, the Northwest Branch Trail, then cross over the bridge and come down the Rachel Carson Trail. It's easier to follow that way. Right now, the trail has been freshly maintained and the wild flowers are out. It's perfect!
