Poison Ivy
This is a beautiful trail, and if you are looking for an easy hike on a very hot day, this is the one. I choose this hike on Wednesday because weather was reaching 90 degress. Its a nice trail, plenty of shade, river breezes, no need to wear heavy hiking boots, sneakers are fine. I did not wear long pants and regretted it. 80% of the trail is lined with Poison Ivy. Be very carefull the poison ivy is rampant.

Nice easy hike
This was a nice easy hike to start off this summer. An alternate to this route is to walk along the Shore Trail all thru - but the historic features/waterfall and the workout was quite worth it.
