We will start at the Hewlett Lodge Visitor's Center The Visitor's Center is located all the way down the entrance road to the very end which is about one mile from the entrance off Roberts Drive. We will start out on the trail behind the Visitor's Center along the river. We will continue to do the lollipop trail. We will return by retracing our steps on the trails. We might take a little detour to see alternate sections of the trails, yet not adding any additional mileage to our hike.
Bathrooms are available at the Visitor's Center. Allow extra time before the hike if you plan to use the restroom.
