Nice walk to start the day, we expected a bit more than the old mine.

Nice walk with some up and down parts. Nice views from bridges. It is a bike track for approximately 1/3 of the loop.

A good, energetic walk including a moving historical site. The return loop is on the Old Ghost Road with much gentler slopes.

Nice walk, interesting cemetery in the woods, hardly any gold mining relics left. Photos and description of historical place gave an excellent impression.

Beautiful walk with the river so close, we were amazed there were such steep drops to the water from the walking path. For the isolation of the path it was well maintained.
