The 30-mile trail is popular among mountain bikers, hikers, backpackers and horseback riders. Allow plenty of time; it's tough to cover the entire trail in one day, even on horseback. No drinking water is available in the parking area or on the trail.
Activities in this area include picknicking, floating, canoeing, boating, fishing, hiking and camping.
